Informal International Partners

  • CAMERA group, University of Bath, UK: Collaboration on non-rigid registration using RGB-D sensors

  • PRISMA Lab, University of Naples, Italy: Collaboration on soft object robotic manipulation, along with DEFROST team at Inria Lille, and collaboration on visual perception for robotic surgery.

  • University of Twente, Netherlands: we collaborate with Prof. Stefano Stramigioli, head of a group in Robotics and Mechatronics laboratory, on the development of a low-cost training system for flexible endoscopy.

  • Verona University, Italy: we collaborate with the ALTAIR Robotics Lab on computer-aided ultrasound guidance using real-time registration. This resulted in 2 publications this year: [19] and [23].

  • Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University, Czech Republic: We collaborate on simulation of living cells in fluorescent microscopy.

  • Team Legato, University of Luxembourg: We have an active collaboration with Prof. Stéphane Bordas on error estimation in real-time simulations of deformable objects.

  • ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research, Bern, Switzerland: Collaboration in the projects related to deep learning.

  • CIMIT and Harvard Medical School: we collaborate with members of the Center for Minimally Invasite Therapy and faculty from HMS on the development of a training system for Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA).
