Research Interests

Matthias Mayer is a PhD student under Prog. Althoff working on modular robots with regards to:

  • Configuration optimization for energy, cycle-time, wear, etc.
  • Building a benchmark for manipulator performance to compare conventional and modular robots on
  • Augmenting the kinematics of modular robots, e.g. with prismatic joints or parallel chains
