Neurorobotics Research Laboratory

Team

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 Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin.

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.

Benjamin Panreck

Benjamin Panreck

Benjamin studied mechatronics at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin and currently pursuing his PhD at the Freie Universität Berlin in the field of bioinformatics.

Since the end of 2015 Benjamin directs and coordinates the projekt works of the NRL. He supports the team in the areas of mechanical construction, manufacturing, electronics, control engineering, microcomputer technology and in the development of digital systems.

Benjamin spends his free time for his family and goes climbing.

Peter Hirschfeld

Peter Hirschfeld

Peter studies computer science at the Freie Universität Berlin and is now in his last stage of his M.Sc programm. He is a trained assistant in automatization- and computer technology and passed his Bachelor at the Fachhochschule Brandenburg.

His work includes designing and solder electronical circuits and the electronical maintenance of the robot Myon. In Addition, he helps Myon to learn new moving pattern.

In his spare time, Peter volunters as a lifeguard at the German Lifeguard Association (DLRG), likes to go hiking and has a big interest in survival skills.

Simon Untergasser

Simon Untergasser

Simon studies Cognitive Systems at Potsdam University and specializes in robotics and artificial intelligence. He works in the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory since April 2016.

His field of work contains speechrecognition and -processing and the implementation of corresponding systems in the humanoid robot Myon.

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

Stefan Ertl

Stefan Ertl

Stefan graduates as a master of mechatronic at the Beuth Univerity of Applied Science Berlin. Based on a bachelor’s degree in automotive engineering from the university of applied science Munich he seeks do deepen his knowledge of electronics.

In the neurorobotic laboratory he works on the details of Myon’s locomotor system for his master’s thesis.

In his spare time Stefan goes mountain biking, bouldering or plays videogames on his PC.

Christopher Steinig

Christopher Steinig

Christopher has been studying mechatronics at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences since 2015. He is interested in the design and development of mechatronic systems, especially in robotics.

Since February 2018 he is part of the team and is involved in the production and assembly of individual parts of the humanoid robot Myon.

Because of his first education in gastronomy, Christopher likes to cook for his friends and family.
