RPL – What is it about?

The Robotics, Perception and Learning lab performs research in computer vision, robotics and machine learning.

Robotic systems that provide advanced service in industry, for search and rescue operations, in medical applications or as assistants to elderly will become an integral part of the future society. Initial systems have for the past couple of decade been deployed in industrial and service sectors but there are still no systems that are ready for the consumer markets. Robots are expected to act in the environments built for humans, hence they should posses some of the human capabilities both in terms of locomotion (e.g. to handle stairs), dexterity (e.g. to manipulate objects and tools made by and for humans) and reasoning (e.g. to exchange information with humans in a natural manner).

Our research focuses on a number of directions. For more details regarding contents, projects and responsible faculty members, please see
