Cognitive Robotics Group


The Cognitive Robotics Group (CRG) investigates problems in perception, inference, learning, and interaction with the goal to endow autonomous systems with capabilities to explore, adapt, and collaborate with people in open-ended environments.

Our work uses hybrid knowledge representation and reasoning methods with the aim to assure and explain autonomous behaviour as well as to build trust in end-users across different domains including assistive robotics, autonomous driving, and space exploration.

Note: CRG is no longer taking on any new students in Oxford! This includes the following programmes: PhD (DPhil), final-year projects (4YP), internships, or visiting students.

Why? Lars Kunze has moved to the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) at UWE Bristol. Please refer to the BRL/UWE website for any future opportunities on scene understanding, causal inference, and/or explainability for safe & trustworthy autonomous systems.
