Dr Jan Paul

main content

Dr. rer. nat. Jan Paul studied Computer Science and Physics at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel, where he graduated in 2000. He received his PhD in 2008 with a thesis on “MaxControl : ein objektorientiertes Werkzeug zur automatischen Erstellung von 3D-Computeranimationsfilmen und dessen Integration in eine professionelle 3D-Animationssoftware” where a simulation framework was developed for 3D computer animations. Since he joined the DFKI-RIC in 2009, Dr. Paul was the leader of the simulation project “Virtual Crater” and of the hardware in the loop simulation project “INVERITAS”, which was a joint project including the additional partners EADS-ASTRIUM and Jena-Optronik. The main goal of INVERITAS was the prototypic realization of a broad-spectrum rendezvous and capture (RvC) system for satellite servicing. The primary task of the DFKI RIC was the development of a long-distance movement simulation system in hard- and software, and the development of alternative grasping strategies. Dr. Paul’s research interests are in the area of the simulation of physical and behavioral properties of robotic systems and their environments.
