Computer vision and image processing are the main research areas of the Robust Vision and Control Laboratory (ROVIS Lab). The goal of the group is to extend the state-of-the-art in applied machine vision, especially taking into account challenges coming from service robotics and real-time vision. The group is active in topics such as robust and dynamic vision for complex scene understanding, cognitive active vision, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) and real-time image processing.


The long-term goal of our computer vision activities is based on integrating robust real-time visual capabilities into autonomous systems in order to give them the ability to reliably understand surrounding environments. Following current research trends, ROVIS Lab aims at developing stand-alone systems which can be used in visual 3D semantic perception and mapping. The usage of the processed visual information can thus be feed as input data to a broad spectrum of systems, ranging from autonomous robots that deal with navigation and object grasping to 3D scene reconstruction and semantic perception.
