Chair of Ergonomics (Prof. Bengler)

Postal address

Boltzmannstr. 15
85747 Garching b. München


Mr. Burak Karakaya earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in automotive and combustion engine technology at the Technical University of Munich. Within the scope of a semester thesis he analyzed the driver’s behavior during take-over situations when driving highly automated. Further, he investigated the influence of a LED bar on situation awareness during highly automated driving in his master thesis. Mr. Karakaya joined the Chair of Ergonomics as a research associate in March 2018 and is involved in the industrial project with Toyota and in the research project CADJapanGermany: HF.
