Robotic research group Robo@FIT

Robotic research group Robo@FIT

Robotic research group at FIT focuses on the development of advanced methods of autonomous intelligent systems and mobile platforms, processing and fusion of sensory data, creating dynamic 3D models of the environment, intelligent decisions and mission planning, knowledge management, multi-agent systems and advanced human-robot interaction systems.

Research interests

  • Sensory data processing and fusion
  • Object detection and classification
  • Localization and mapping
  • 3D environment modelling
  • Simulations and Visualizations
  • Advanced and assistive user interfaces 
  • Augmented reality, Virtual reality
  • Collaborative robotics

Current research topics

Robotic research group at FIT focuses is currently engaged in research into human-robot interaction, especially in shared-space collaborative environments in the programming, parametrization, or revision of production procedures using augmented reality.


In the area of safe human-robot interaction, we offer collaboration to solve the tasks of programming and inspection of collaborative robot procedures in Industry 4.0 with the use of mobile devices and augmented reality. An example is the recent collaboration with ABB (see a video).

Robotic Lab

The robot lab is made up of several detached workplaces and is equipped with mobile robots for land and air movement in both indoor and outdoor environments. There are also laboratories for the development of platforms and electronics, such as the development of the RUDA rescue robot and the laboratory for industrial manipulation for experiments with the industrial manipulator MELFA. The equipment of the laboratory enables to study in the areas of data fusion from different sensors (image, depth, inertial, etc.), measurements and reconstructions in 3D space, planning and navigation of ground and air robots, human interaction with robot, validation of perception technologies in robotic or supervisory systems, etc.
