Achim J. Lilienthal

Welcome to my home page!

I am a professor for Computer Science at Örebro University and head of the Mobile Robotics and Olfaction (MRO) Lab, a research group at the AASS Research Centre formerly called the "Learning Systems Lab".

By design, the research directions of the MRO Lab are aligned with my personal research interests. The general focus is on perception systems for mobile robots that operate in unconstrained, dynamic environments. A major aim is to integrate research results timely in industrial demonstrators. More specifically, my research addresses Rich 3D Perception, Robot Vision and Mobile Robot Olfaction.
