Master Theses Projects in Vision-based Autonomous Systems

cyvy 2020-05-11 Tübingen Master

The Embodied Vision group investigates novel approaches to vision-based perception and learning for intelligent systems that are closely coupled with control and planning. We are looking for talented students who are pursuing a Master of Science degree in computer science, electrical or control engineering, applied mathematics or physics and are eager to pursue their Master thesis on a research topic in our group.

Intelligent systems that perform complex tasks in everyday environments require the ability to perceive their environment and the objects with which they interact. Besides tactile or proprioceptive sensing, vision is an important sensing modality for such systems that provides rich sensory information. The Embodied Vision group (https://ev.is.mpg.de) at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Tübingen investigates novel approaches to vision-based perception and learning f...
