About Eckard Riedenklau
Eckard Riedenklau received his diploma (Master’s degree) in
Computer Science from Bielefeld University in 2009. Since August
2009 he was PhD student in the
institute, working in the
, lead by
Prof. Dr. Helge Ritter
and received his PhD in July 2015.
In his PhD project Tangible Active Objects (TAOs)
he focused on Human Computer Interfaces (HCI) and Tangible
Interaction in combination with Robotics.
In this project a novel Human Computer Interaction (HCI)
approach was developed. Small-sized reconfigurable robots,
so called TAOs, with multi-modal input and output capabilities
can act as an embodiment of data.
Thereby existing Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) can be extended
with active feedback capabilities or even completely new
aplications can be developed, e.g. in the field of assistive
