Dr. Ilshat Mamaev

Institute of Anthropomatics and Robotics Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe, Germany

A Concept for a Human-Robot Collaboration Workspace Using Proximity Sensors


Ilshat Mamaev studied Computer Science and Mathematics at Ufa State Aviation Technical University (Russia), was awarded an international scholarship by DAAD and went to Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany) in 2007. He has completed his Ph.D. in 2010 with a thesis “Robot Control and Image Processing for Bin-Picking Problem using PMD-Camera”. His research topics include on-line trajectory generation, hybrid control, safe human-robot interaction, and robotic perception. Dr. Mamaev has contributed to the development of a 3-finger industrial gripper in cooperation with SCHUNK GmbH. In the EU AAL project EXO-LEGS, he was leading the development of a dynamic control system for exoskeletons. In an ongoing project, QBIIK autonomous mobile robot with proximity perception, a custom gripper system, and an uncoupled human-robot interface is being developed. In 2019, Dr. Mamaev held a keynote speech at the World IoT Expo 2019 - China-Europe IoT Summit.
