Released my tools for efficient human-robot interface development at the European Conference on Mobile Robots with the title “Open-Source Tools for Efficient ROS and ROS2-based 2D Human-Robot Interface Development”. [Paper] [Preprint]
I'm a robotics researcher at the Technical University of Darmstadt focusing on ground robot navigation in rescue contexts (harsh and unknown terrain). However, for legacy reasons I also work a bit on UI and have released some cool libraries and plugins that help robotics enthusiasts to create great looking UIs with little effort.
The QML ROS2 Plugin brings full ROS support to QML-based human machine and 2.5D human robot interfaces.
Allows introspection into ROS2 messages and to communicate from C++ using ROS2 message types that are unknown at compile time.

Started working as a PhD candidate at the Technical University of Darmstadt in the emergenCITY research project.
Awarded my Master of Science degree at the Technical University of Darmstadt for my thesis on the topic “Online 3D Path Planning and Exploration for Autonomous Mobile Robots in Unstructured Environments”.
Participated as member of Team Hector in the Plant Disaster Challenge at the World Robot Summit in Tokyo where we scored first place. My responsibilities included the user interface and the detection of rust in images.
The ARGOS challenge was a challenge hosted by TOTAL to create the first autonomous inspection robot for oil and gas platforms. I was part of the winning team Argonauts where I was responsible for the UI framework and the mission planning interface.
