About JRL

Welcome to the Joint Robotics Lab!

The JRL is a joint project of members of the department of computer science at Goethe University Frankfurt to teach students on complex autonomous systems.

Educational and Research Concept

The idea behind JRL is to focus on project-oriented learning. Students can take the opportunity to work in a project of practical relevance, and work autonomously on cutting-edge topics under the supervision of researches at Goethe University. Cooperation between students and researchers improves soft skills and eases knowledge transfer. Linking research and teaching will be beneficial for students and researchers!

Visibility of Computer Science to the General Public

The JRL tries to improve visibility of natural sciences and computer science in particular to the general public by showing interesting, tangible, and apparent applications at various events. Our goal is to awaken interest for natural sciences especially in young people. We are present at events like Night of Science, Tage der Naturwissenschaften or the Girl’s Night.

See our news page for coming activities.
