Personal Details

I studied media systems at the Bauhaus-University Weimar from October 2000 to May 2006. My main focus is on virtual reality. I am especially interested in the design of human computer interface solutions.

For my diploma thesis I have developed a tactile feedback mechanism for the A.R.T. fingertracking glove using shape memory alloys. Despite the low bandwidth of shape memory alloys, I found a solution how to use them in immersive CAVE-like environments
Robert Scheibe

Since August 2006 I'm employed at the Advanced Realtime Tracking GmbH in Weilheim, Germany. I developed a tactile feedback system as successor of the system I've done in my diploma thesis. From 2009 until 2011 I was involved in the Avilus project, founded by the German government (BMfBF), promoting the Motion Capturing capabilities of ART.
