Autonomous Intelligent Systems Group:

The University of Bonn has a long tradition in computer vision and robotics
research and multiple outstanding groups in these areas. The Autonomous
Intelligent Systems Group, headed by Sven Behnke, has developed
award-winning
cognitive robot systems, including domestic service robots, autonomous
micro
aerial vehicles, humanoid soccer robots, robots for mobile manipulation in
rough terrain, bin-picking robots, and robots for intuitive human-robot
interaction. Contributions include deep learning architectures and
algorithms,
efficient methods for RGB-D and laser-based SLAM, semantic environment
perception, robot navigation, object manipulation and tool use, bipedal
walking, multimodal human-robot interaction, and learning from
demonstrations
and own experience.
