The activities of the AI research group are diverse with excellence in research, teaching and engagement. Below we showcase a few examples of our work.

Brains on Board

What if we could design an autonomous flying robot with the navigational and learning abilities of a honeybee?

Such a computationally and energy-efficient autonomous robot would represent a step-change in robotics technology and is precisely what the ‘Brains on Board’ project aims to achieve
