FCTUC

 


University of Coimbra,  Faculty of Sciences and Technology, Institute of Systems and Robotics (FCTUC)

The Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra FCTUC hosts the Institute of Systems and Robotics (www.isr.uc.pt) from the University of Coimbra (www.uc.pt), a non-profit institution dedicated to research in the field of robotics, able to carry out leading edge research in several key areas of science and technology, with a special emphasis in automation and robotics. 

The work by FCTUC in HANDLE will be carried out at the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR-UC). ISR-UC at FCTUC, has activities in the areas of robotics vision, autonomous systems, multi-sensor fusion and integration, tele-operation, sensor development and control. The objective is to contribute for the development of higher degree of autonomy and robustness of the robotics systems when interacting with an unknown environment. The research results have potential applications in assistive technologies for humans, human-machine interfaces and in operation of robots in dangerous environments. Ongoing projects include the development of navigation systems for mobile robots, high-performance man-machine interface, active vision systems for robotics applications, 3D reconstruction of the human eye, new sensors for robotics, autonomous vehicles. ISR-UC is financed by research grants from FCT – Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation, European projects and networks. ISR and FCTUC have been developing a strong co-operation with several groups on Europe.

ISR-UC plays an important role by providing research laboratories and equipment for the research activities of PhD students taking courses in Electrical and Computers Engineering with the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC). ISR-UC has been developing a strong cooperation with the Psychophysiology group from IBILI - The Institute of Biomedical Research in Light and Image from the Faculty of Medicine from the University of Coimbra (www.ibili.uc.pt). IBILI is an important and natural partner for research on sensory function of humans and for the support the implementations of robotics for assistive technologies on humans.
