Robotic perception group (ROP) deals with machine perception, namely computer vision, tactile perception for robotic manipulation and perception from other sensory modalities to lesser degree too. In computer vision we deal with object segmentation using graph methods, videosequences analysis, object detection in images and videos. The other area of interest is the vision-based quality check for industry.
In the automotive domain, we perceive the traffic from the outside of a car and also from the ego-car (project UP-Drive). In robotic applications, we are interested in the situation awareness around a mobile robot (project TRADR). In dual-arm manipulation with soft objects as pieces of a garment (project CloPeMa finished in 2015, followed by the project RadioRoSo) and perception in the Industry 4.0 context.
