Wolfgang received his B.Sc. in Engineering Science and his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technical University Munich working on human-robot interaction and reinforcement learning. For his Bachelor Thesis he worked on the control of mobility assistive robots for human fall prevention. He continued his work in the field of human-robot interaction during his Master's thesis, which focused on the prediction of human motions in complex interaction scenarios.
Currently, Wolfgang is a Ph.D. student at the University of Twente, The Netherlands working on the control of lower limb exoskeletons.
My research focus is to improve assistance exoskeletons can give their user, healthy or paraplegic. Therefore, I am interested in the following topics:
- Human-in-the-Loop methods for exoskeleton assistance
- Motion planning for exoskeletons
- Balance for exoskeletons and humanoid robots
- Low level control of exoskeletons
- Reinforcement learning for improved human-robot interaction
- Biological effects of human exoskeleton interaction
