Autonomous Mobile Robots / Autonomous Driving Techniques
Artificial Intelligence / Deep Image Learning
Interactive Cognitive Learning
Intelligent vision and autonomous mobility (iVAM) laboratory is a laboratory for cultivating the students with high-quality engineering talents and multidisciplinary integration capability. We are focusing on the implementation of high-level mechatronic design, intelligent robotic system, artificial intelligence and interdisciplinary integration. Our research interests consist of autonomous mobile robots, autonomous driving techniques, artificial intelligence, deep image learning and interactive cognitive learning. The ongoing projects are developing a campus autonomous electrical vehicle (AEV), simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) based mobile robot for factory material transport, autonomous manipulations combining with deep learning image based object detection and positioning, automatic optical inspection (AOI) for industrial inspections, etc. Especially, the iVAM AEV project was initiated in July 2017. We are trying to explore and experience very technical and hands-on details of constructing an autonomous electrical vehicle. Up to now, our AEV is able to perform a pilot run in NTUST campus in terms of 3D Lidar Odometry and Mapping (LOAM), GPS, image based segmentation and object detection. The avoidance of obstacle and pedestrian is also performed in terms of image and 2D Lidar perceptions and recognition. The details can be found at http://ivamlab.ntust.edu.tw/

Quantum computation / Quantum cryptography
Quantum error correction
The research directions of our group include coding and information theory, quantum computation, quantum algorithms, and quantum cryptography. All of these fields are theoretical research. As the quantum machine IBM Q is available now, we can start to do small scale quantum experiments. Students with backgrounds in communications/ electrical engineering/ computer science/ mathematics/ physics are all welcome.

Deep learning / AI in music / AI in story generation
AI in bioinformatics / multi-agent coordination
We are working on applying artificial intelligence and deep learning techniques in various interdisciplinary domains such music composition, lyrics generation and virtual singers, the other is the story generation in virtual drama. In multi-agent coordination, we are studying multi-drone in optimization of mission allocation and route planning in avoiding collision and threat under dynamic environment. We are also working on drug side effect prediction based on large scale of bioinformatics data base. In our lab, currently there are around 15 domestic graduate students working as teams on the above topics. We currently also have two international students who are from South America in our group, and we welcome more international students to join in our group.
