During my time as a PhD student CITEC, Bielefeld University I was sometimes asked to create showcase images of the robotics research performed at the institute. This story features a selection of the photos created at that time.

CITEC was primarily known for its research on human-robot interaction. One of the prototypical robotics involved there is the colleague below.

My group was, however, primarily researching human-robot collaboration in industrial settings. For this purpose, an industrial transfer laboratory was operated with different industrial settings replicated there.

Inside the transfer lab, one photo series I took documents research on reconfiguring a robotic arm inside a modular production cell using physical human-robot interaction.
