Modulating Human Subjective
University of Luebeck
In the Service Robotics Group, Institute of Computer Engineering at the University of Luebeck (UZL), Germany, we study large-scale mobile multi-robot systems and bio-hybrid systems (tight collaboration of natural organisms and technology). More specifically, we use methods of machine learning and evolutionary computation to synthesize robot controllers and to predict (machine) behavior. Relevant fields of research are:
- (evolutionary) swarm robotics
- bio-hybrid systems and phytosensing
- machine learning and machine behavior
- swarm intelligence
Since 2017, Heiko Hamann is professor for service robotics at the University of Luebeck, Germany. He was assistant professor of swarm robotics at the University of Paderborn, Germany from 2013 until 2017. His main research interests are swarm robotics, bio-hybrid systems, evolutionary robotics, and modeling of complex systems. In his research projects, he studies bio-hybrid systems, such as using natural plants as sensors by doing phytosensing (EU-funded project WatchPlant) and forming symbiotic relationships between robots and natural plants to produce architectural artifacts and living spaces (EU-funded project flora robotica).
Julian Kaduk has a broad engineering background reaching from interaction design over industrial automation to robotics and artificial intelligence. After completing his M.Sc. in Intelligent & Embedded Systems, he started working as a research assistant at the University of Lübeck's Institute of Computer Engineering in September 2021. His main drive is to research and innovate technology for the sustainable improvement and enhancement of human lives. With his passion and diverse background, he focuses on combining human perception and interaction with robotics. Human-Robot Collaboration and Human-Swarm Interaction through Augmented Reality within intelligent environments are central for him.
