Maximilian Kunz started to study computer science from 2014 till 2022 with the specialization "Robotics" at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. He completed his study with his master thesis “High-Level Semantic Localization using OpenStreetMap Surface data” in the Robotics Research Lab.


Since October 2022 Maximilian Kunz is a PhD-student in the Robotics Research Lab. His main research interests are high-level localization of outdoor robots using human-inspired methods. Especially in GNSS-denied areas, Referencing landmarks is crucial for a reliable localization. Additionally, he is very involved in simulation with applications in the field of robotics like the generation of environments using DEM(Digital Elevation Model) and virtual sensors.
