The purpose of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft was to enable PhD students and researchers to study Topological Robotics, a new field investigating topological problems motivated by robotics and engineering as well as problems of practical robotics requiring topological tools. The topics broadly fell into the areas of Topology of configuration spaces, Topological complexity of robot motion planning algorithms and Stochastic topology.
