Dr.-Ing. Florian Bergner

Technical University of Munich

Chair of Cognitive Systems (Prof. Cheng)

Research Interests

Florian Bergner is conducting research on large-area electronic skin (e-skin) with a focus on the effective realization of biological plausible principles, the efficient handling of tactile information, and the seamless and flexible integration of e-skin in complex autonomous systems, e.g. robots. His research contributes solutions for e-skin systems that allow tactile-driven feedback at a scale where all previous approaches failed.

Interests

tactile sensing
electronics
microcontrollers & FPGAs
sensor calibration & fusion
somatosensory system
bio-inspired engineering
tactile-driven interaction & contact control
robotic applications
