About Us

The conducted research of Intelligent and Mobile Robotics Group (IMR) is focused on design and development of intelligent mobile robots - self-guided vehicles. The overall goal is to develop a highly robust cognitive control system for this kind of robots and to bring novel ideas into particular solutions. For central tasks are considered: sensing of the environment, sensor data processing and data understanding, all leading towards automated world model building and/or updating. The used knowledge representations of the world are designed and optimized for planning of robot activities and for self-navigation in real (indoor) environments. As such system requires highly complex control and decision-making the crucial parts is always the sensing and sensor data understanding.

Success Stories

Series of UAV swarm experiments successfully realized within project COLOS (joint research of IMR and Prof. Vijay Kumar's group from University of Pennsylvania). See swarm page for details on the swarm control.

Possibility of autonomous coordination of a military vehicle with flying robots have been verified during NATO exercises in Lest, Slovakia. See swarm page for details on the applied formation control.

The cage for the experiments with the UAVs is installed in the campus of CTU at Karlovo naměsti. Now, everything is prepared for experimentating with real swarm of UAVs. See swarm page for details.
