ARVIS Lab

Aston Robotics, Vision, and Intelligent Systems Lab

Robotics

To enable machines to perform physical tasks to aid human beings and advance our capabilities

Vision

To enable machines to perceive the visual world around them and derive a high-level understanding

Intelligent Systems

To allow for advanced decision making through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The ARVIS team aims to improve mankind’s quality of life by enabling intelligent robots, virtual agents and autonomous systems with the perceptual and cognitive capabilities of the future. In addition to publishing our Scientific Contributions, we also look at attaining Societal contributions through applied research.

 

The team is made up of researchers from the Computer Science Department and is within ASTUTE (Aston Institute for Urban Technology and the Environment), at the School of Engineering and Applied Science of Aston University, Birmingham, UK.
