Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Krüger

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Krüger studied electrical engineering at the University of Paderborn and the Technical University of Berlin, where he received his diploma in 1991. In 1998 he received his doctorate on the subject of "Methods for improving fault detection on drive systems". In 1999 he founded the company reCognitec Gesellschaft für digitale Bildverarbeitung mbH, whose focus is on the field of vision-based automation in logistics. In 2003, Prof. Krüger was appointed University Professor for the Chair of Industrial Automation Technology at the Institute of Machine Tools and Factory Management (IWF) at TU Berlin. In 2004, he was also appointed Director of Automation Technology at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology. In addition to these tasks, between 2005 and 2018 Prof. Krüger temporarily headed various departments at TU Berlin (Industrial Information Technology, Quality Science, Assembly Technology and Factory Management) as well as the Division for Medical Technology of Fraunhofer IPK. Since 2008, he has also been involved in the establishment of the Turkish-German University (TDU) in Istanbul where he is coordinator of the Faculty of Engineering and head of Bachelor, Master and PhD programmes. In 2005, Prof. Krüger was elected a member of the German Academic Association for Production Technology (WGP). Since August 2008, he has been a member of the International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP), where he serves as the Chair of the Scientific Technical Committee "Lifecycle Engineering and Assembly" since 2019. Prof. Krüger has also been a founding member of the Scientific Society for Assembly, Handling and Industrial Robotics (MHI) since 2012. Since 2021, Prof. Krüger is the Managing Director of the Institute of Machine Tools and Factory Management (IWF) at TU Berlin.

His research focuses on human-centered and vision based automation, in which he and his teams develop control and robot systems for human-robot collaboration and medical rehabilitation as well as methods and applications of machine vision for object recognition and vision based automation in production and logistics.
