Reserach area: Kinematics and Robotics



Research in this area deals with the geometry and kinematics of mechanisms with a focus on applications on the one hand, and theoretical kinematicson the other hand. Applications are diverse and range from car side windows to x-ray spectrometry.
A major topic are overconstrained linkages, i.e., mechanisms which move despite the fact that a simplistic count of degrees of freedom yields rigidity.
