About Me

Working on high-precision localization for self-driving cars at BMW since 2019.

Worked on camera based traffic sign and traffic light recognition for driver assistance systems at BMW from 2014 to 2019. You will not run a red traffic light in a new BMW anymore!

Worked on many other smaller or bigger projects before that - from business software to AI.

Did my PhD in Computer Vision on learning context for semantic segmentation at the Technical University of Munich in cooperation with BMW.

Got my master's degree in robotics form the Technical University of Munich in 2011.

I write a blog about technology, travel and photography. Check out my latest articles here.

Open-sourced a tool for creating nice and simple photo galleries as static HTML sites, which I use to share my photos with friends and family.

I spend all my vacation traveling with my family and taking a lot of photos and videos. I share my photos on Unsplash.
