Mobile Robot.

The contribution in the field of mobile robotics is focused on autonomous navigation. In particular algorithms for path planning, mapping and obstacle avoidance are developed and evaluated. The key objective of this research is the development of service robots, autonomous transport systems and autonomous observations systems. An other topic in the field of mobile robotics that is currently under investigation is human-robot-interaction with robotic manipulators.
