Main researcher: Jose A. Castellanos
Research team: J. Neira, C. Estrada, L. Paz, P. Pinies, D. Galvez-
Lopez, H. Carrillo, Y. Latif, I. Reid (Univ. Adelaide), E. Nebot (ACFR)

Research goals:
1. Cooperative mapping in heterogeneous multi-sensor systems
    a. Exploitation of prior mapping information
    b. Human-robot cooperative mapping
    c. Dense SLAM for 6-dof cooperative sensor systems
    d. Efficient information fusion algorithms for cooperative mapping
2. Life-long spatial understanding
    a. Scene recognition and categorization for semantic mapping
    b. Semantic scene understanding for active SLAM
    c. Adaptation and learning in changing environments

Candidate profile:
- Master Degree in Engineering, Mathematics or Physics
