Jacobs University, Bremen
The Robotics group started at the very beginning of academic activities at Jacobs University in fall 2001. Much like Jacobs itself as a novel, highly selective institution in the German university landscape, robotics is still a very young and very small but ambitious group comitted to excellence in research. The group is truly international with English as working language. Jacobs University was called International University Bremen (IUB) before 2007 [more info]; hence the two names for the same institution can be found on this website.
Jacobs Robotics is embedded in the EECS undergraduate teaching activities and in the CS graduate program SmartSystems.
The research of the group focuses on Autonomous Systems. The expertise in this field ranges from the development of embedded hardware over mechatronics and sensors to high-level software. On the basic research side of autonomous systems, machine learning and cooperation are core themes of robotics research at Jacobs University. The systems developed here are used in various domains, the most important one being safety, security and rescue robots (SSRR).
