Welcome to my webpage! My name is Jan Behrens and I am a Junior Researcher at the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics, CTU in Prague (CIIRC CTU) and work on the Robotics for Industry 4.0 project. Before, I followed the Industrial Doctorate Program in the Corporate Research sector at Robert Bosch GmbH. I received a M.Sc. in Automation Engineering in 2015 and a B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from RWTH Aachen University in 2013. My main research interests are Hybrid Planning, Integrated Task and Motion Planning, Constraint Optimization, Optimal Control, Dual-Arm Manipulation, and Industrial Manufacturing. You can donwload my CV here.
2022-02-28 Our paper Active Visuo-Haptic Object Shape Completion is now available on IEEE EXPLORE. It is accepted to RA-L and will be presented at ICRA 2022.
2021-08-27 I presented a robotic experiment and our research group in front of the delegation of the German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Read more about the visit of Frank-Walter Steinmeier here: https://ricaip.eu/german-president-in-ricaip/
