Human Robot Collaboration, Generalizable Skill Data Base, Intention Learning
Since July 2017 she is working on the KOBO project which aims to contribute to improving the social participation of elderly people and maintaining their independence with a humanoid service robot.
She is also participating in the aDDa project, which aims to build an autonomous car at TU-Darmstadt.
From June 2016 since July 2017 she was working on the SKILLS4ROBOTS project which aims to acquire and improve a library of motor skills for humanoid robots.
Before joining the Autonomous Systems Labs, Dorothea Koert received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computational Engineering (focus on mechanical engineering) and a Master of Science degree in Computational Engineering (focus on computational robotics) as well as a Master of Science degree in Autonomous Systems from the TU Darmstadt.
Between 2012 and 2016 she was a member of Team Hector, a robotics team with focus on Search and Rescue robotics, and participated in the RoboCup Rescue League as well as in the Darpa Robotics Challenge and the ARGOS challenge. During her master's her research interests focussed on Machine Learning and it's applications to robotics and her master's thesis entitled "Combining Human Demonstrations and Motion Planning for Movement Primitive Optimization" was written under supervision of Rudolf Lioutikov, Guilherme Maeda and Jan Peters.
