Academic Background

Doris Aschenbrenner is an assistant professor at TU Delft. Before 2017, she was a researcher at the research institute "Zentrum für Telematik" at Würzburg. She received her computer science diploma at the University of Würzburg in 2012 and holds a doctorate degree (Dr. rer. nat) from the same university covering a work about remote maintenance of industrial robots. The work was developed together with examples from production provided by mainly Procter & Gamble and KUKA Industries.

Doris works on robotics and automation, cognitive systems and advanced human-machine interfaces like Augmented and Virtual Reality. Her main research interest is to create sustainable employment within the fourth industrial revolution. This is possible if we are able to develop the "Operator 4.0" who is supported by technology so that he or she can enhance the physical, sensing and cognitive abilities. The intelligent production system can be described as a smart cyber-physical system which works in an interdependent teamwork configuration together with human workers (Human Cyber-Physical Production System HCPPS). She is a member of the GI, the ASME, and the IEEE.
