The AASS Learning Systems Lab

The Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS Research Centre, 
http://aass.oru.se) carries out multi-disciplinary research at the 
intersection of robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, 
computer vision, computer science, and measurement technology. The 
research and human environment at AASS is young and enthusiastic. 
Researchers come from different countries and have different scientific 
and cultural backgrounds. AASS also frequently hosts international 
researchers and is involved in several international projects.

The Learning Systems Lab is one of three research groups within AASS. 
Our research has its focus generally on the development of algorithms 
and robotic/sensor systems for real-world tasks. Major directions are 
Mobile Robot Olfaction, Robotic Map Learning, Robot Vision, Autonomous 
Transportation Systems, Programming-by-Demonstration and Tactile 
Exploration. Further information can be found at 
http://www.aass.oru.se/Research/Learning. Currently, the Learning 
Systems Lab has a staff of 9 PhD students, 5 post-docs, 3 part-time 
professors and one associate professor.
