Safe the Date: Open Lab Day on May 20th

We open our doors on May 20th:

  • Open Students Day 11:00 – 14:00.
  • Lange Nacht der Forschung 16:00 – 23:00.

Get in touch with us, find out what drives us, which theses and projects we offer and put hands on our modern robotic systems.

We also provide some snacks, sandwishes and pizza during the two events.

The Chair of Cyber-Physical-Systems

The Chair of Cyber-Physical-Systems at the Montanuniversität Leoben in Austria is lead by Prof. Elmar Rueckert.

The group’s research topics are  autonomous systems, machine and deep learning, embedded smart sensing systems and computational models.

Find out more about us here  (a recent post in German).

AI & Robotics Positions and Topics

The chair is offering a number of open positions and student thesis topics in AI and robotics.

Also check our wiki, which offers numerous public posts on open source code repositories or tutorials.
