The future incumbent’s field of work should be Autonomous Systems, with a focus on one or more of the following:
– Safety and reliability Engineering
– Risk modelling, analysis and management
– Artificial intelligence (in particular machine learning, big data analytics)
– Decision making, decision support systems and mission planning
– Self-organizing systems
– Human-machine systems.
The chair is expected to complement already existing research areas at the faculty with respect to autonomous systems: mechatronics, sensors and actuators, optimization, systems theory and control, robot control, path planning, vision systems, sensor fusion and perception, and telecommunications.
Furthermore, this chair is expected to build up an interdisciplinary research group, that will study and develop solutions for challenges of real autonomous systems both theoretically and through experimental research.
