Research Groups

Prof. Dr. Britta Wrede
We develop robots and other intelligent systems that are capable of social interaction. The aim are applications that provide helpful services in everyday situations.
Dr. Sebastian Wrede
We conduct research on methods, architecture and toolchains for efficient software engineering and integration of interactive intelligent systems with applications in robotics and automation.
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Rückert
Our main research objective is the systematic design of resource-efficient microelectronic components for cognitive technical systems.
Prof. Dr. Barbara Hammer
Our research centers around on cognitively inspired algorithms for intelligent data analysis such as adaptive classification or visualization of complex data structures.
Prof. Dr. Helge Ritter
We strive for a deeper understanding of the required interplay of adaptive control, embodiment and knowledge to enable cognitive interaction for robots or intelligent interfaces.
Prof. Dr. Stefan Kopp
We study the behavioral, sensori­motor and cognitive mechanisms of human communication to turn technical systems into socially intelligent interaction partners.
Prof. Dr. Günter W. Maier
Our research focuses on performance and well-being in organizations considering personnel development, organizational culture and the experience of employees.
