Nicolas Niessen, M.Sc. has been working at the Chair of Ergonomics since March 2022. The focus of his work lies in intuitive Human-Robot-Interaction (HRI).
Mr. Niessen studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich with a focus on rapid prototyping and medical engineering and stays abroad in Lausanne and Stockholm. After internships in the development of inspection drones and surgical robots, he created a machine for additive manufacturing in high vacuum in his semester project. With his Master's thesis on the biomechanical simulation of the joint reaction forces during the use of an exosuit, he leaned more into the direction of ergonomics. In his research at the Chair of Ergonomics, Mr. Niessen develops an interaction tool kit for communication with logistics robots in cooperation with the Chair of Materials Handling, Material Flow, Logistics (TUM fml).
