Cognitive Systems & Robotics Laboratory

The Cognitive Systems and Robotics Laboratory was established in 2008 with the aim of performing research and development in the fields of computer vision, machine learning, computational modelling and human machine interfaces targeting robotics and embedded artificial intelligence. In the context of research projects, the laboratory develops robotic capabilities such as:

  • Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) of unexplored environments.
  • Semantic mapping of environments using mobile robots and machine learning techniques.
  • Socially aware autonomous navigation in human populated spaces.
  • Computer vision for human motion tracking and activity recognition as well as grasp planning.
  • Robot vision for object recognition and 6-D pose estimation for object manipulation.
  • Trajectory planning for mobile platforms and manipulators.
  • Intelligent robotic manipulation of rigid and deformable objects.
  • Artificial intelligence for robot cognition.
  • Robot learning by demonstration of assembly tasks.
  • Multi-modal and affective human-robot interaction.
  • Safe human robot collaboration.
