Computational Intelligence and Robotics
This line of research promotes the development of theoretical and practical aspects of Computational Intelligence methods, such as neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computing and image processing, oriented towards Electrical Engineering and related areas, as well as Robotics, a discipline that It encompasses the design, construction, and control of autonomous machines capable of making their own decisions. Both disciplines are related in that the high-level perceptual, motor, and control systems of robots are designed using computational intelligence techniques.
The main research projects include: design and construction of social robots and humanoid robots, development of autonomous vehicles, human-computer and human-robot interfaces, biometric identification systems, video surveillance systems, biomedical signal processing, and analysis. of astronomical time series.
