Markus received his diploma in mechanical engineering from TU Wien in 1988, his M.Sc. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA, in 1990, and a PhD at TU Wien in 1993. As a PostDoc he worked at HelpMate Robotics Inc. with Josef Engelberger and the Vision Laboratory of Gregory Hager at Yale University. In 2004, he obtained the habilitation in robotics based on his work in visual servoing. He coordinated the EC projects RobVision, ActIPret, robotshome and Hobbit and contributed to many more, such as GRASP, STRANDS, and Squirrel. He was the program chair of the ICRA 2013 in Karlsruhe and organized the ERF 2015 and HRI 2017 in Vienna. He is a director on the board of euRobotics and will be organising the IEEE ICRA in 2026 in Vienna. Markus’ special interests are cognitive vision methods for robotics solutions situated in real-world environments, especially homes.
