Reinhold Behringer
Knorr Bremse GmbH

Brief Bio
Since April 2019 Reinhold Behringer is working at Knorr Bremse GmbH on the development of autonomous truck systems. He previously (7/2017-3/2019) has been employed by Daimler-Protics in the development of Augmented Reality system for passenger vehicles. He is currently Visiting Professor at Leeds Beckett University, where he was Professor of Creative Technology from 2005 to 2017. His R&D focus in this position was on eLearning, location-based application development and mobile devices. He has two degrees in Physics (1988: MA, SUNY Buffalo, USA. 1990: Diplom in Physics, University Würzburg, Germany) and a PhD in Engineering (1996: Dr.Ing., UniBwM München, Germany). His main professional expertise is in autonomous road vehicles and real-time computer vision systems. He participated in the first US DARPA Grand Challenge (2004) and earlier in the development of the very first autonomous road vehicle which was driving on public roads in Germany (1995). For this vehicle, he has developed a real-time computer vision system for road/lane detection and following. During his following work at Rockwell Scientific (Thousand Oaks, USA) (1996-2005) he has developed prototype systems for Augmented Reality demonstrators and multi-modal Human-Computer Interaction demonstrations, which did employ real-time computer vision approaches for scene detection and motion/orientation tracking. In his current role at Knorr-Bremse GmbH he is involved in the development of neural network concepts for utilizing data from a variety of sensors with the goal to enable autonomously driving trucks in SAE level 3 and higher. ...
