Dr. Tobias Bruckmann received the Dipl.-Ing. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Duisburg, Germany, in 2004 and the Dr.-Ing. In 2010. He is currently working as a Lecturer and Research Group Leader at the Chair of Mechatronics, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, where he is leading a research team with experiences in numerous fields of robotics, including cable-driven parallel manipulators, construction machines and human-machine interaction. His interests focus on cable-driven parallel manipulators, mechatronic system design and real-time control.
Besides fundamental and applied robotics, he is giving lectures also in vehicle dynamics. Since 2013, he is teaching as well at the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, Germany.
Dr. Bruckmann was co-organizer and general chair of the "First International Conference on Cable-Driven Parallel Robots", Stuttgart, Germany, 2012 and of the "Second International Conference on Cable-Driven Parallel Robots", Duisburg, Germany, 2014 as well as the "Third International Conference on Cable-Driven Parallel Robots", Québec, Canada, 2017. In parallel, he was member of the scientific committees of the IFToMM D-A-CH Conferences 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
He served as an associate editor for 2015 and 2016 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) as well as for the 2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS).
Tobias Bruckmann is member of VDI/VDI-GMA Technical Committees 4.15 "Mechatronik" and 4.10 "Interdisziplinäre Produktentstehung" and member of the Technical Committee for Robotics and Mechatronics of the International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science (IFToMM).
He edited three books and over 60 scientific articles and conference contributions.Find out more
