TriP: A Python package for the kinematic modeling of seriell-parallel hybrid robots

Published in Journal of Open Source Software, 2021

TriP is a lightweight and easy-to-use package directly modeling hybrid serial-parallel mechanisms and calculating their kinematics.

Highly dynamic robotic leg for non-biomimetic walking robots

Published in Actuator Conference, 2022

Due to a predisposition of DNA to generate symmetric anatomy, there are no tripedal animals in nature. Yet, threelegged walking might be the sweet spot between the energy efficiency of bipeds and the stability of quadrupeds. This paper presents the non-biomimetic leg for the TriPed, a novel three-legged mobile walking robot that aims to study the advantages and disadvantages of three-legged walking.

Tutor Intelligent Systems

graduate course, Heidelberg University, Chair of Automation, 2018

This course was part of the specialisation “Intelligent Autonomous Systems” and consistet of a lecture as well as a tutorial and weekly exercise sheets which the students had to complete. My Job as tutor included answering the students questions about the lecture as well as designing and correting the exercise sheets. The tutorials where also used as a place to look to the horizon and discuss and design applications of the lecture topics. These included:

Tutor Robotic Games WS 19/20

graduate course, Heidelberg University, Chair of Automation, 2019

The lecture robotic Games is a colaboration between me and Holger Dieterich applying higher level reasoning to mobile robotics systems.

Co-lecturer Robotic Games SS 20

graduate course, Heidelberg University, Aries Lab, 2020

The lecture robotic Games is a colaboration between me and Holger Dieterich applying higher level reasoning to mobile robotics systems.

Lecturer Robotic Games SS 21

graduate course, Heidelberg University, Aries Lab, 2021

The lecture robotic Games is a colaboration between me and Holger Dieterich applying higher level reasoning to mobile robotics systems. The lecture was further improved from its last iteration by focussing more on decision making systems and streamlining the syllabus. Due to covid the lectures where livestreamed and later uploaded to youtube.
