Robotics and autonomous systems

Robotics and autonomous systems is an interdisciplinary area of research spanning several areas in artificial intelligence. This group is led by Terry Payne.

We focus on the ability of machines to act intelligently within society. Autonomous systems can perceive their environment, for example through sensors on a robot, situated in a building within an internet of things scenario, or by monitoring electronic services and information sources. Based on this knowledge, agents make decisions to perform actions that are directed to achieving a specific aim such as autonomous vehicles and smart devices, as well as social and industrial robots.
