Marco Hutter is Assistant Professor for Robotic Systems at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, since 2015 and a Branco Weiss fellow since 2014. Before this, he was the Deputy Director and Group Leader in the field of legged robotics at the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zurich. After studying mechanical engineering, he completed a doctoral degree in robotics at ETH Zurich with a focus on the design, actuation, and control of dynamic legged robotic systems. Beside his commitment within the NCCR Digital Fabrication since October 2015, Marco Hutter is part of the NCCR Robotics and coordinator of several research projects, industrial collaborations, and international competitions that target the application of high-mobile autonomous vehicles in challenging environments such as for search and rescue, industrial inspection, or construction operation. His research interests lie in the development of novel machines and actuation concepts together with the underlying control, planning, and optimisation algorithms for locomotion and manipulation.
