Institute of Ergonomics and Division of Sports Equipment and Materials
Welcome to the joint website of the Institute of Ergonomics (Prof. Dr. phil. Klaus Bengler) and the Division of Sports Equipment and Material ( Prof. Dr.-Ing. Veit Senner) at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technischen Universität München.
Riender Happee (TU Delft) has been awarded a grant in the Visiting Professorship Program of the Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts. At the Institute of Ergonomics he will perform research and initiate projects in the field of Automotive Human Factors (e.g. in the project HFAuto).
The European projects D3CoS, EX-CROSS and ASTUTE have achieved major accomplishments towards accident/error-free and decarbonized environment, by developing and implementing the next generation of the Human-Machine Systems and Cooperative Systems in several domains, for a safer, cleaner and more efficient interaction between human-agents and machine-agents. After three years of leading research, we invite you to find out more about these trendsetting solutions and experience them in live presentations and demonstrations at the

Lilienthalplatz 7, 38108 Braunschweig, GermanyDuring this unique showcase, you will be able to network with experts and discover the latest developments for dynamic, distributed and cooperative systems. The results of the three projects will be presented in dedicated conference sessions and a common exhibition, where we will present demonstrators in the automotive, maritime, manned- and unmanned avionic and emergency dispatching domains.

Garching's science campus, one of the largest centers for research and teaching in Germany, once again invites on the 19th of October 2013 for the "open day". From 11 to 18 o'clock, numerous research institutes open their doors and give insight into the world of science in form of experiments, guided tours and lectures.
About Institute and Division
Division of Sports Equipment and Materials
The specialty division Sport Equipment and Materials (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Veit Senner) is a new member of our faculty. In 2002 it has been initially established at the Faculty of Sports Science. August 2009 it was transferred to Mechanical Engineering where it became an associated division at the Institute of Ergonomics (Professor Bengler). As its research and teaching is clearly positioned between engineering science and sports science it was consequent to express this interdisciplinary by maintaining a co-membership in the former Faculty of Sports Science.
Currently there are 5 internal staff members and 5 external in two spin-off companies working for the division’s benefit.
