Recerca bàsica i aplicada al desenvolupament de sistemes intel•ligents capaços d'interactuar amb el món de forma autònoma i ubica. Aquests sistemes hauran de percebre, raonar, planificar, actuar i aprendre de l'experiència prèvia. El grup treballa activament en tres àrees: robòtica social i aèria ; visió per computador i reconeixement estructural de patrons. Dins de la robòtica social s’està treballant en els següents temes: Interacció robot-humà; localització i navegació social i autònoma de robots; localització i construcció simultània de mapes (SLAM); robòtica ubiqua; robòtica mòbil cooperativa; i robòtica aèria. En visió per computador es treballa en: seguiment, identificació i reconeixement de objectes; en xarxes de sensors de càmeres; fusió de dades; i percepció cooperativa. I en reconeixement estructural de patrons s'està treballant en mètodes de síntesi i coincidència de grafs i el la seva aplicació a la robòtica.

The Artificial Vision and Intelligent Systems Group (VIS) carries out basic and applied research with the aim of understanding and designing intelligent systems that are capable of interacting with the real world in an autonomous and wide-reaching manner. Such intelligent systems must perceive, reason, plan, act and learn from previous experiences. The group works on the following topics: robust colour image segmentation and labelling, pattern recognition, viewpoint invariant object learning and recognition, object tracking, face tracking, biometrics, processing and analysis of medical images for diagnosis, document analysis, mobile robot navigation, simultaneous localisation and map building, visual servoing, and human-computer interaction. The possible areas of application of the VIS?s research include the automotive and transport industry, the biomedical imaging industry, the space industry, robotics applications, security, home and office automation, the entertainment industry, and future computing enviro
