Head of Department: Dr. Ing. Michael Suppa
The research areas cover
The development of integrated solutions for robotic perception from the data acquisition to the application is a core competence of the department. Sensor-based applications suchas tactile and visual exploration and navigation, photo realism, further augmentation of realscenes for tele robotics as well as derivation of solutions for automation in theindustry are research topics. The methods for data interpretation and task-orientedscene comprehension are based on the modeling process and allow for efficient exploration for different missions in space, aerospace and terrestrial scenarios.
The department is networked worldwide as part of national and international cooperations. Additionally, close industrial contacts exist, accounting for the increased industrial demand for intelligent sensor data processing.
