Think robot!

About ViSiR

We are a group of researchers and PhD students at Reutlingen University whose research focuses on artificial intelligence, image understanding and interactive robotics. Commonly accepted human-machine-interaction is our inducement for implementing new projects.

Research Fields

  • machine vision and image understanding
  • interactive robotics in motion (SLAM, LIDAR)
  • machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • deep learning networks for face recognition, object detection, person tracking, etc.

RoboCup Team RT Lions

The RT Lions are the RoboCup-Team of Reutlingen University, consisting of students, professors and scientific assistants. The team was founded in 2009 in the mechatronics division, but we are open for all students at Reutlingen University, of course.

We used to play in the Mixed Reality – League with real miniature robots in a virtual football world.

In 2011 we organized NAO-Robots of the standard-platform-league, that come closer to human football since they are humanoid robots. End of 2013 our SCITOS-lady Leonie joined the team, to be the door-opener for the @Home-League. In 2016 Leonart became the new team member, bringing an arm and gripper to the @Home challenges.
