Speaker:Prof. Jorge Miranda Dias
Department of Electrical Engineering
University of Coimbra, Portugal
Date & Time:18 Apr 2008 (Friday) 16:00 - 17:30


In this topic, the recent research activities in perception and human robot intraction in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, University of Coimbra will be introduced. Using computer vision technique, how to construct 3D map of environment using mobile robot will be discussed. Effective methods of human robot interaction will be presented as well.


Prof. Dias received Ph.D. from University of Coimbra in 1994, he is specialized in computer vision, robotics and image processing. He has supervised 9 Ph.D theses in these areas. As a PI, he has finished many research projects supported by numerous fund agencies. Up to now, he has published about 90 papers in international journals and conferences.
