What we do

What we do

PXL AI & Robotics Lab is the research group @ PXL University College, active in the fields of Computer Vision, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. The main focus is programming Robots and Vision Systems.

The fundaments of our AI & Robotics Lab were laid out in three research groups: Drones@PXL, FocusVision and AI&Robotics. These converged into this research group that combines the best of the previous work.

New junior researchers join us every year, working hard to lift the research group to the next level.
