School of Computer Science

Overview of the group

We conduct research in most sub-fields of intelligent robotics and related areas. This includes the following:

  • computational modelling of humans (Sloman, Wyatt)
  • architectures for robotics (Hawes, Sloman, Wyatt)
  • long-life robotics (Hawes)
  • task planning and scheduling for robots (Wyatt, Hawes, Parker)
  • computer vision and robot vision (Leonardis, Wyatt)
  • dynamics and kinematics (Azad)
  • robot manipulation (Kopicki, Wyatt, Zito)

We gratefully acknowledge the support of all our funders past and present. These include the European Commission IST Directorate Cognition Unit, the Leverhulme Trust, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the Medical Research Council (MRC), the Royal Society, Innovate UK, and the British Council.
