Robert Katzschmann is an Assistant Professor of Robotics in the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at ETH Zurich, where he leads the Soft Robotics Lab. Welcome!
The research goal of Robert Katzschmann is to develop soft robots and biohybrid robots, made from compliant materials similar to those found in living organisms. His research group designs and fabricates fluidic and electric drive concepts and develops modeling, controls, and machine learning algorithms to enable soft, flexible, and adaptive interactions of robots with objects and living beings.
