Lars Buethe


Lars Büthe is a PhD student in the Wearable Computing Lab. at the department of Electrical Engineering of ETH Zürich in Switzerland. He graduated with a degree in mechatronics from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in early 2012 and a thesis on the topic of “Simultaneous measurement of temperature and strain based on fibre bragg gratings and modal interferometry”. During his studies he spent two semesters at the University of New South Wales in Australia and completed an internship with Dürr Systems in Nanjing, China. He is currently involved in the iCareNet project as a Marie Curie research fellow under the supervision of Prof. Gerhard Tröster. His research focuses on the development of flexible acceleration sensors in order to measure postures during rehabilitation.
