DROP (Deep Robot Optical Perception) Lab
at the University of Michigan
- DROP Lab is looking to hire several Postdocs and Research engineers in Autonomous Cars get in touch via email or find us at ICRA 2016
- Ph.D Student Jie Li will be presenting High-Level Visual Features for Underwater Place Recognition at ICRA 2015
- Prof. Johnson-Roberson was awarded a NSF CAREER: Real-Time 3D Reconstruction and Manipulation for Underwater Intervention
The DROP (Deep Robot Optical Perception) Lab's research goal is to develop robotic systems capable of operating in complex dynamic environments. To this end, we seek to expand and improve the perceptual capabilities of autonomous systems. Our work seeks to push the bounds of scale and resolution in 3D reconstruction, segmentation, data mining, and visualization for massive datasets gathered with robotic systems. We expect to continue to advance research in robotic perception, which we believe has the potential to develop new robotic task domains.
