` Intelligent and Mobile Robotics

About Us

The Intelligent and Mobile Robotics Group (IMR) has a history of more than 25 years conducting both basic and applied cutting-edge research that concentrates on the design and development of intelligent mobile robots and self-guided vehicles. Our main goals are to create highly robust cognitive control systems for this kind of robots and to bring novel ideas into particular solutions. Central tasks in the lab involve sensing of the environment and processing and understanding of the acquired sensor data. This in turn leads towards automated world model building and/or updating as well as the creation and storage of large maps. The learned models of the world are then used for planning of robot activities and for self-navigation in real environments (both indoor and outdoor).

Success Stories

Our paper Ego-motion Sensor for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Based on a Single-Board Computer won the 3rd price for Best Technical Paper Award at the CLAWAR'17 Conference (20th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots and Support Technologies for Mobile Machines). Authors are G. Écorchard, A. Heinrich, and L. Přeučil.


Our successful proposal for organization of IROS2021 in Prague prepared together with Guarant International wons the Ambassador Awards - kandidatura roku.


Best Paper Award for the conference paper of M. Kulich, V. Kozák and L. Přeučil:Comparison of Local Planning Algorithms for Mobile Robots presented on the MODELLING AND SIMULATION FOR AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS WORKSHOP 2015
