Dr.-Ing. Bernd-Helge Leroch

(birth name: Schäfer)




In 1979 Bernd-Helge Leroch (born Schäfer) was born in Mainz at the river Rhein. From 1999 until 2005 he studied Informatics at the University of Kaiserslautern. He graduated in the field of robotics handing in the Diploma Thesis 'Securtity Aspects of Motion Execution in Outdoor Terrain'. The Thesis was prepared in cooperation with the 'Royal Military Academy Belgium' and has been carried out in equal shares at Kaiserslautern and Bruxelles.

Mr. Leroch is student in the PhD Programme of the Informatics Department since October 2003. In this context he was given the possibility to integrate early into research activities of the Robotics Research Lab.

From 2005 to 2010 Mr. Leroch worked on his PhD thesis with the title "Control System Design Schemata and their Application in O?-road Robotics". Besides the theoretical specification of design schemata Mr. Leroch pushed the development of the off-road platform RAVON.

Bernd-Helge Leroch is IEEE Member and initiator of the robotics research compendium RRLib (Robotics Research Lib). Currently Mr. Leroch prepares the spin-off company RobotMakers together with his colleagues Mr. Hillenbrand and Mr. Wettach. Since November 2010 the three founders are supported in their innovative endeavour by the federal programme Exist.
