Orhan Can Görür


I received my Bachelor (2011) and Master (2014) degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, specialized on Robotics, from the Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey). In 2020, I finalized my Ph.D. at Technische Universität Berlin in the field of anticipatory decision-making algorithms for collaborative robots in Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC) scenarios. Since 2014, I am working at DAI-Labor in several research projects covering Robotics and Autonomous Systems with the applications on Industry 4.0, cobots, and autonomous driving concepts. Since 2017, I am teaching a Master's course at TU Berlin called "Applications of Robotics and Autonomous Systems" focusing on projects, such as small-scale autonomous cars.
