One of the main research areas of the Institute of Automation (IAT) at the University of Bremen, Department of Prof. Dr. Graeser (http://www.iat.uni-bremen.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=95) is robust image processing for real-time robotics and autonomous systems applications. Over recent years, UB-IAT researches have participated in a number of national
(German) and EU projects and have developed vision systems for different applications: vision guided object grasping in assistive robotics, vision based control of robotic follower, gait analysis, advanced driving assistant systems and welding.
UB-IAT knowledge and experience in developing robust vision systems for robotics and autonomous systems, gained in completed and ongoing projects, as well as UB-IAT expertise in coordination of national and international (EU) collaborative projects will be leveraged into the SMART project.
