ROP - Robot perception

Autonomous robots (systems) serve as the unifying theme in RMP department. Autonomous robot are able to sense their world, perceive it, understand substantial objects in it, explore this undestanding for reasoning, decision making and planning actions fulfilling a task, which is usually assigned from outside. On the perception side, we deal mainly with computer vision and tactile sensing. Mobile robots, teams of mobile robots and robot/human cooperation are in our range of interests too. Decision making, planning and exploring algebraic/geometric tools are researched in RMP department too. Our research deals also with chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear aspects, which induces robotic and other applictaions in special environments, also for applying robots in radiopharmacy, security and defense.

ROP group has been following the Center for Machine Perception (CMP) tradition. CMP was built on the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEL) only from 1996 to 2013. Since CIIRC creation in 2013, CMP bridges two CTU parts, i.e. FEL and CIIRC. One part of CMP acts at the Department of Cybernetics FEL and two parts, groups ROP and AAG (lead by Tomáš Pajdla) in the Robotics and Machine Perception department of CIIRC.
