Section: Overall Objectives

Overall Objectives

The main objective is to study autonomous robotic systems, from the perception and the control point of views, interacting and evolving among the human beings in live and dynamic environments. By autonomous robotic systems, we refer to Autonomous Vehicles, Mobile robots, UAV and combination of them. Our research ambition is to explore new paradigms and concepts allowing autonomous robotic systems i) to acquire and share a task-oriented representation of the world (accounting for interactions with humans) ii) to act and interact in human-like environments (accounting for interactions with humans) in a safe and efficient way. Task specification, world and interaction modelling, situation awareness, multi sensor based perception and control, the coupling between perception and action, and hybrid model based/deep learning based architectures will be the main focuses of our researches. Although the underlying concepts could be potentially applied to manipulator arms, we have voluntarily restricted the scope of the project to mobile robotic applications that sound more topical and challenging.
