Research Interests

My research interest are mainly within industrial robotics with focus on the field of mobile manipulation for industrial tasks. Currently, my research is within reconfiguration of mobile manipulators. Reconfiguration in terms of both software and hardware. In software, my focus has been on using our concept of robot skills to create an intuitive and quick way of instructing a mobile manipulator to a new task. In terms of hardware, I investigate how hardware reconfiguration can be formalized and made intuitive. My hypothesis is, that the hardware configuration needed for a task is indeed tightly linked to the software configuration; hence, the sequence of skills. Thus, instead of establishing a hardware configuration prior to a software configuration, I hypothesize that the hardware configuration can be derived from the sequence of skills.
