Henrik Hautop Lund is head of the Center for Playware at Technical University of Denmark (DTU Elektro). Professor Henrik Hautop Lund is known world-wide for his work in bringing robotics to use in novel ways. His approach is to combine modular robotics and modern artificial intelligence to create novel solutions to problems that occupy the citizens of the World, e.g. obesity, rehabilitation, sport, music, teaching, and 3rd World development by allowing non-expert users access to the new technology in a playful and motivating way. He has recently founded the Center for Playware to focus even further on how playful aspects of robotics may provide motivation for any citizen to perform different kinds of interaction with the robots of our future daily life.

Professor Henrik Hautop Lund has published more than 135 scientific articles in the field of robotics, he has been a member of the Danish Research Council, and he has been invited to present his robotic work in numerous occasions, for instance for the Emperor of Japan at Akasaka Palace in Tokyo. He founded and headed the LEGO Lab in 1997-2000, and he founded RoboCluster. He invented the RoboCup Junior robot football game for children, and his Adaptronics group won the RoboCup Humanoids Free Style World Championship 2002 in front of 120.000 spectators. Further, he developed the RoboMusic in collaboration with World Music Award winner, remix musician Funkstar De Luxe. Professor Lund’s work has received world-wide interest from news media, e.g. WIRED and CNN, and he was nominated for the award for the best entertainment robots and systems research over the last 20 years at the IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS).
