Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Lars Tingelstad works as an Associate Professor of Robotics in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at NTNU, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway. He works in the Robotics and Automation group led by Professor Olav Egeland.

Tingelstad's current research focuses on robotics and automation in the Norwegian and European manufacturing industry. More specifically on robotic welding and assembly, as well as bin-picking and 3-D vision.

Tingelstad received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from NTNU in 2011 and 2017, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis was on the estimation of rigid-body motions from the observation of 3-D geometric objects such as points, lines, planes, circles, and spheres, in conformal geometric algebra (Clifford algebra), supervised by Professor Olav Egeland.

Tingelstad has built two robots labs and contributed to several open-source projects, including ROS-Industrial (robot models and a real-time control interface for KUKA industrial robots) and Pymanopt (optimization on Lie-groups).

Tingelstad currently teaches the course TPK4170 - Robotics.
