Eike Gassen studied mechanical engineering at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern in his bachelor's degree and mechanical engineering with applied computer science in his master's degree.

During his studies, he focused on robotics. In his project work, he dealt with the setup of a collaborative lightweight robot with Robot Operating System (ROS). The topic of his master thesis was the conceptual design of a vineyard robot in steep slope viticulture. In addition to the comparison of different kinematics concepts, a modular design of the entire robot was discussed in order to achieve the most extensive use in the vineyard. Gassen has been a member of staff at RRLab since September 2021. His research focus here is on innovative mechatronic systems in agriculture.
