In robotics, our expertise ranges from minimally invasive surgical robots to the integration of robots into human environments to support daily tasks. Our computer vision group focuses on research in recognition, detection, medical imaging analysis, and computer vision for augmented reality. In graphics, our strengths include shape retrieval, symmetry detection, surface reconstruction, mesh editing, and image processing.

We collaborate often with the university’s Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics, widely regarded as one of the top robotics research sites in the world—particularly in the area of medical robotics.
