Autonomous Intelligent Systems Group:

The University of Bonn has a long tradition in computer vision and robotics
research and multiple outstanding groups in these areas. The Autonomous
Intelligent Systems Group, headed by Sven Behnke, has developed 
cognitive robot systems, including domestic service robots, autonomous 
aerial vehicles, humanoid soccer robots, robots for mobile manipulation in
rough terrain, bin-picking robots, and robots for intuitive human-robot
interaction. Contributions include deep learning architectures and 
efficient methods for RGB-D and laser-based SLAM, semantic environment
perception, robot navigation, object manipulation and tool use, bipedal
walking, multimodal human-robot interaction, and learning from 
and own experience.
