Short Bio:

Tobias Schöls studied electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen from 2011-2014. During this time he was also working at the Institute for Imaging and Computer Vision as a Student Research Assistant. After finishing his Bachelor studies successfully he joined the autonomous driving team at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America for a 9 month internship. During this time he worked on the evaluation of high definition maps and served as Scrum master.

Returning to Germany in 2015 he continued his studies enrolling to a Master's program in Embedded Systems Engineering at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. In 2018 he finished the program successfully with a Master's Thesis on "Optimization-Based Robot Motion Planning in Dynamic Environments". Since fall 2018 he is a PhD Student at SYSCOP continuing his research on model predictive control based robot motion planning and control in dynamic environments.
