Simon Kerscher has worked in construction robotics, automating a walking excavator since 2018. Previously he studied mechanical engineering with a focus on controls and robotics at ETH Zurich.
He is now a robotics engineer for the NCCR DFAB Spin Off: Gravis Robotics.
Simon works on driver-assistance and teleoperation of a walking excavator. The aim is to use this technology in challenging environments, where access by humans is undesirable.
