Research interests of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hartmut Surmann

Currently my research interests concentrate in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and computational intelligence (fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms). Also my previous research interests in microelectronics is included in this framework. Since I studied computer science and electrical engineering I combine the theoretical aspects of cognition and intelligence phenomena with practical applications for robots. To electrical engineers my work seems highly theoretical and for computer scientists too much practical. Though these two aspects may seem contradicting, there synthesis leads to desirable results. The following list gives an overview of the main topics. Please look at my publication site for detailed papers to the topics.

Control of multiple autonomous mobile robots,  e.g. service robots

System compatible interventions in organizations

I only read articles and research results but i did not work actively in this research area (Is it possible to work in a large organization and not to work actively in this area or is it a big online experiment?)
