Patrick Hart, M.Sc.

Patrick Hart studied mechanical engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) where he also received his Master of Science in 2016. Being one of the founders of an autonomous driving student group the focus of his studies were centered on robotics, advanced mechatronics and autonomous driving. In the beginning of 2017 he joined the autonomous driving team as a staff researcher at fortiss. His research is focused on trajectory planning and behavior generation for autonomous vehicles.
