Short Bio

Christoph Ledermann studied Electrical Engineering at KIT and afterwards earned his doctorate in informatics in 2016. The topic of his doctoral thesis was "Shape Sensing of a Flexible Instrument for Minimally Invasive Surgery" using fiber optical sensors (Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors).
Ater working in the industry at ITK Engineering GmbH and Visteon Electronics Germany GmbH, where he gained valuable knowledge and experience in working processes and functional Safety in the automotive industry, Christoph Ledermann returned to IPR in 2018 in order to found and lead the research group "Safety in Robotics and HRI".
