Personal profile

Research profile

René van de Molengraft is an Associate Professor and Chair Motion Control of at the Mechanical Engineering Department at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).He worked as an assistant professor at TU/e from 1992 to 2008 and became an associate professor in 2008). His main research interest is in the area of autonomous robotic systems

Academic background

René van de Molengraft received his MSc degree (with honors) in Mechanical Engineering from TU/e in 1986. From 1986 until 1990 he was a research assistant at Eindhoven University of Technology. In 1990 he received his PhD from TU/e for this thesis on the subject of Identification of Mechanical Systems for Control.

In 2005, he founded the Tech United Robocup team (world champion MSL robot soccer in 2012, 2014 and 2016). René is also the founder of the Stichting Robotica Promotie (foundation for the promotion of Robotics). This foundation aims to bring technology, and in particular robotics, to the attention of the general public.
