Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robotics

The Laboratory for Autonomous Systems and Mobile Robotics (LAMOR), directed by Prof. Ivan Petrović of the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, has a long tradition in research of advanced control strategies and estimation techniques for a variety of applications with a strong emphasis on autonomous navigation of ground and aerial robots in unknown and dynamic environments. Our methodology relies on a strong coupling between theoretical research, algorithm development, experimental evaluations, and a healthy dose of serendipity. LAMOR's research activity is organized around three major axes: Motion Planning and Control, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, and Detection and Tracking of Moving Objects. Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art ground and aerial robotic platforms, advanced perception sensors and a motion capture covered arena.

LAMOR, DATACROSS Project and Centre of Research Excellence for Data Science and Cooperative Systems - ACROSS Research Unit, invite you to the lecture:

"Bio-inspired Methods for Sensing and Instrumentation"

which will be held by Prof. Amit MishraUniversity of Cape Town, South Africa. The lecture will take place on Monday, October 18, 2021, at 11.00h, in the Gray Hall of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing.

You can find more about the lecturer and the seminar in the detailed news content.

In this talk, the author shall discuss some of the recent projects he has been working on where the innovations have been inspired by the biosphere. In this, he shall present a new paradigm of sensing (enabled by machine learning) called application specific instrumentation. He shall, further, discuss another bio-inspired sensing system innovated by him called Communication based Sensing. Lastly, he will present some of his recent work on brain-inspired AI architecture.
