Neurorobotics Research Laboratory


The team led by Prof. Dr. Manfred Hild consists of three employees. As part of studies and theses, the team is accompanied by additional freelancers. Every wednesday the conjoint Jour fixe takes place, where daily work is coordinated. Specially organized workshops serve as further education and focused content exchange.

Prof. Dr. Manfred Hild

Prof. Dr. Manfred Hild

Manfred studied mathematics and psychology at the Universität Konstanz, Germany, and got his doctoral degree at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Since 2014 he is professor for Digital Systems at the Berliner Hochschule für Technik.

His scientific interests lie in the following fields: dynamics of recurrent neural networks, humanoids robotics with a special focus on sensorimotor and audio-visual processing, unsupervised learning paradigms for autonomous self-exploration, and parallel distributed systems.

As leader of the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory, he is supervising the design of bionic constructions, electronic circuits, and computational architectures. Further fields of interest are computer music, digital signal processing, and applications of FPGAs.

Dr. Benjamin Panreck

Benjamin Panreck

Benjamin studied mechatronics at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences and subsequently received his doctors degree in computer science from the Freie Universität Berlin.

Since the end of 2015, Benjamin has been leading and coordinating project work at the NRL. He supports the team in the areas of construction, manufacturing, electronics, microcomputer technology, digital systems development and teaching. His main focus is hand-eye coordination with the humanoid robot Myon and printing electronic circuits and components (printed electronics).

Benjamin enjoys spending his free time with his family and common projects.

Simon Untergasser

Simon Untergasser

Simon studied Cognitive Systems at Potsdam University works in the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory since April 2016.

Currently he is working on his dissertation on localization and mapping, interactive learning and human-machine interaction.

Simon has great interest in mechanism of nature and ermerging inteligence. Away from science he likes to travel and doing sports.
