OMROB (Optomechatronics and Multiscale Robotics Lab) is a multidisciplinary research lab, headed by Professor Min Young Kim.
The lab combines expertise from optics, mechanics, and electronics to develop and investigate new systems for different applications and research.
Since its foundation, OMROB has produced dozens of academic papers in distinguished scientific journals, registered a number of patents and completed several projects successfully.
- Autonomous Vehicle
In autonomous vehicle research, We are studying for vision sensing, object detection and
environmental perception for autonomous vehicles. Plus, its vision algorithm for driving control is researched
based on camera and LiDAR fusion datasets. We had joined a real autonomous vehicle challenge
on 2017 and the new renovated vehicle is being developed for next challenges.
- Defense Systems
We are an active group in defense related research and development.
We are extensively working on some of the most challenging task in defense and security
such as: long range drone detection, CNN based robust object tracking, anti-saturation
and IR contrast enhancement for EO/IR, and background registration-based filtering
for LWIR/MWIR imaging sensors.
- Human Interaction
We are working on intelligent agent development for human computer interaction
using RGB-D cameras.
- Optical Inspection system
A key focus of the lab is to design new optical systems for nanoscale 3D measurement
and auto defect detection using machine learning techniques in industrial inspection.
- Neurosurgical Robot Systems
Our medical research is focused on image to patient registration in head surgery,
optical surgical tool tracking in minimally invasive surgery and 3D geometry acquisition of
human body parts for different medical procedures.
NEW MARK Design
OMROB logo defines the core parts of our research. The first multi-color O represents the multispectral (visible and infrared) imaging systems. The second O symbolizes an eye and a lens which denote two closely related branches of vision research: human and machine vision. An arc from the first O to the second O combing all the letters depicts data fusion and stereo vision system for 3D perception.
