Bio-inspired Eye movements with an Active Binocular Vision Robot

Themes: Robotics

Late lab scale demonstration

A TRL is a measure to indicate the matureness of a developing technology. When an innovative idea is discovered it is often not directly suitable for application. Usually such novel idea is subjected to further experimentation, testing and prototyping before it can be implemented. The image below shows how to read TRL’s to categorise the innovative ideas.

Our project will improve the visual processing and stabilisation of an active vision system meant for visual guided mobile robotics.


Taking inspiration on how the human eye system works from a neurological point of view, not only to imitate its eye movements, but to implement its adaptive capabilities as well.


Our system could have an impact on society by 2020, depending on its use. Visual guided mobile robotics and existing image recording systems can benefit from this.
