Alexander Köpper studied electrical engineering with a focus on automation technology at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. He wrote his diploma thesis entitled "Ein Ansatz zur modularen, einheitlichen Entwicklung von eingebetteten Systemen" (engl.: "An Approach for Modular, Uniform Development of Embedded Systems") at Fraunhofer IESE in Kaiserslautern.
He is currently a research associate at the Robotics Research Lab.
His research focuses on hybrid HW-/SW-control architectures for robot systems. In particular, he investigates the feasibility of integrating behavior-based control architectures into FPGA-based platforms. In this context, he works with the iB2C architecture developed at the chair and in particular the hardware-related control of mobile robots such as the SUGV2.
