Research

We aim to capture the best intelligence possible for robots. To achieve this goal, we focus on two main directions in this field:

 

General Autonomous Pipeline

An autonomous robot is an integrated system that is capable of performing a series of operations to their surroundings. These operations are often determined by reference to the external environment that is perceived and measured within the robot itself. A general autonomous pipeline should provide certain automation to Perception, Cognition, and Control. This may include research topics in sensor fusion, SLAMs, local/global planning, collision avoidance and their machine learning acceleration.

 

Uncontrolled Scene Understanding

We are living in a highly dynamic and uncontrolled surrounding. Understanding such a scene may involve information capture and analysis at Geometric and Semantic levels. The former focuses on the extraction of geometric entities/primitives from a scene, and consider the interactions between them. The latter is often to learn the semantic clues for the geometric primitives. Correctly understanding a scene is an essential prerequisite for richer applications in autonomous robotics.
