Werner Alexander Isop graduated from CUAS (Carinthia University of Applied Sciences) as BSc in the field of Systems Engineering in 2012 and as MSc in the field of Systems Design in 2014 with highest distinction. During his study he was able to gain professional experience in these fields at companies like Infineon Technologies and Siemens.
He further participated as member of the CUAS-RRR team at the RoboCup Rescue League (RoboCup German Open) in 2013 and 2014 in Magdeburg where his team scored both times a 3rd place. As part of the RoboCup Rescue competitions he designed and implemented the Robot Control System (RCS) and the Robot Remote System (RRS) as teleoperation interface for the first tracked CUAS RoboCup robot called RUDI (Robot for Urban Desaster Intervention). Based on this work, he was able to publish the results at the ESE Congress 2013 in Sindelfingen (Germany). As part of company collaboration in the field of robotics and control, he was further able to present results of his Master Thesis at the MATLAB Expo 2015 in Munich (Germany).
After his education at the CUAS, he got employed as project assistant at the Graz University of Technology, Austria. He is currently pursuing a PhD in computer science at the Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision under supervision of Prof. Dr. Dieter Schmalstieg and in collaboration with Ass.Prof. Dr. Friedrich Fraundorfer. He is currently focusing his research on mobile robotics and AR/VR.
