Professor of Robotics Ian Sillitoe will present the lecture on Wednesday, 17 March 2010 at 6pm.
The talk is titled Computational Aspects of Robotics: Novel Sensory Processing Techniques and will take place in MC001 at the Wolverhampton City Campus.
A fundamental difficulty in the design of mobile robots is the provision of suitable sensory information to enable them to successfully navigate an unknown environment.
In this lecture Professor Ian Sillitoe will discuss steps towards solving these problems and a number of novel processing techniques that he has developed.
These techniques include providing robots with the ability to acquire information about nearby objects using ultrasonic mapping, hardware based image processing techniques and distributed behavioural control.
The 13th public lecture series is open to all and aims to showcase University research on a wide range of subjects.
Professor Sillitoe joined the Graduate School at the University of Wolverhampton as Associate Dean of Research and Graduate studies in 2008. Previously , Professor Sillitoe was Professor of Robotics at the University of Borås, Sweden and held the posts of visiting professor at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden and the University of Tartu, Estonia.
