Maximilian Hübner, M.Sc. is as a research associate at the Chair of Ergonomics since November 2021. He studied Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Engineering, and Automotive and Combustion Engine Technology at the Technical University of Munich. In his semester thesis at the Institute of Automotive Technology, Mr. Hübner developed a Wizard-Of-Oz preliminary study to evaluate anthropomorphism in driver-vehicle interaction. At the Chair of Ergonomics, he wrote his master's thesis on a study to evaluate explicit and implicit external communication concepts of an automated vehicle in a multi-agent simulation. As part of his research at the chair, Mr. Hübner is developing an external communication concept for automated vehicles for urban, pedestrian-rich scenarios.
