The Service and Industrial Robotics and Automation Laboratory (SIRALab), which is part of DIEI, carries out research activities on control systems, robotics and autonomous systems, engineering for medicine and biology, and systems biology. The group is also involved in a number of technology transfer projects covering the above areas, as well as general control and automation problems.

Robotics and Perception

Modern robot research focuses on complex robot-human and robot-environment interaction. The ability to perform complex actions is connected to the quality of spatial perception the robot has and this depends not only on good sensors, but mostly on good algorithms that enable these machines to understand data collected by their cameras, lasers, microphones and other sensors they have. Our group works actively on robotics research, computer vision for robotics  and on machine learning solutions to fundamental robotic problems, like sensor fusion, robot localization, space perception, movement and human-machine interaction.
The objective of this project is to develop a new kind of visual sensor: complex enough to sense and describe the visual world it observes - yet enjoys the characteristics of simple (e.g. temperature) sensors: ultra-low power consumption, easy connect ability, and a small, unobtrusive form-factor. The proposed vision system is based on a custom CMOS ultra low-power vision sensor, partially embedding a reliable algorithm for people detection and monitoring in the analog stage of the pixel; a low power sensor interface allowing the sensor to live for at least 5 months- with a minimum energy-budget, powered with a tiny battery or a super capacitor, which can be recharged by a 1 cm2 solar-cell; a high-level computing platform which is turned on only when necessary, triggered by the sensor as soon as it detects a potential alert situation.
