My current research investigates the scientific principles and practical methods to develop and analyse an event-driven embedded distributed operating system for small-scale robots.

This research includes embedded systems, operating systems, distributed systems, and multi-robot systems.

This is carried out at the facilities of Sheffield Robotics at the University of Sheffield. I’m – and, consequently, my project is – financially supported through the DOC-Fellowship, which is a reward of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

My work lead also to OpenSwarm – an operating system for miniature robots.
