IoT Robotics Group Košice


We are a group of teachers, PhD, MSc and Bc students of the Center of Intelligent Cybernetic Systems at the Technical University of Košice (Slovakia), who are interested in development of technologies, which have found their common use in the area known as Internet of Things (IoT). We try to interconnect various devices and to create a service environment for a human. Especially, our interest is focused on using means of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in IoT tasks (data processing, decision making support, control, etc.), which would enable to a mobile robot its function in the environment of the so-called Intelligent Space (IS).

Recommended FB group: AI-CIT(Intelligent Systems) (not only but sometimes also about IoT)

Our Aims:

  1. Creating a common platform in the form of an IS for research and demonstration of IoT tasks and problems.
  2. Solving problems connected with sensing data, their collection and processing as well as their utilization in tasks of decision making support or cooperative control.
  3. Research in the area of ubiquitous robotics, i.e. use of IoT means for needs of a robot or a group of robots (localisation, navigation, path planning) as well as a robot as an element of IoT, too.

  4. Education of IoT principles and ubiquitous robotics in the form of demonstrations, projects and final thesis.
  5. Support in designing student projects offering them a variety of sensors, communication and computational means including cloud and fog computing.
  6. Public propagation of IoT and ubiquitous robotics at various events, conferences as well as by other publication activities (videos, papers in journals, etc.).
