The Mechatronics and Robotics group is tasked with robotics and vision system research within the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics.
The scientists cover the whole spectrum from  control algorithms and systems to complex mechatronic devices. We develop robots and vision systems for different tasks, among other things for inspection, exploration, maintenance and rehabilitation. Moreover, we provide rapid prototyping and 3D scanning services for other research groups in the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics.

Our group covers the following research areas:

Mobile robotics

  • underwater inspection robots
  • pipeline inspection robots
  • survey robots
  • mobile robots
  • rehabilitation devices
  • path planning for mobile robots
  • space robotics
  • control systems for mobile robots
  • 2D/3D mapping

Vision systems

  • 3D structure and motion reconstruction
  • vision-based mobile robot control
  • vision-based underwater robot control
  • active vision systems in underwater robot control
  • vision-based measurements and quality control
  • objects identification and localization
  • digital image processing
  • robots’ repeatability and trajectory investigation
  • rapid prototyping of vision algorithms and visual servoing algorithms
  • medical image processing and analysis
