Our region thrives because of the support of investors, elevators, an extensive startup support system, and established and prominent research hubs. Innovation in the region is inclusive - it's happening across diverse sectors and includes social, cultural, sustainable and indigenous innovation.
The Edmonton Region is a place to challenge boundaries, unlock your potential, and achieve the unthinkable.
The Vison and Robotics research group performs research in several areas of computer vision , robotics and medical imaging. In computer vision, they design methods for dynamic vision (tracking, visual servoing, on-line 3D modeling from images, dynamic textures). In medical imaging, they look at applications of variational methods and PDEs for various tasks like segmentation, registration, tumor growth prediction on MRI and DTI (tensor) data. In robotics, they design and build vision-based software for autonomous and semi-autonomous control of manipulators and mobile manipulators.
The Energy digitization Lab is concerned with the digitization of electrical energy systems across all levels, both horizontally and vertically: from IoT devices providing access to sensors and levers of the smart grid to cloud-based services for storing and processing the large amount of data produced by the modern electricity grids.
Future Energy Systems develops the energy technologies of the near future, examines their integration into current infrastructure, and considers their social, economic, and environmental impacts. They also contribute to the development of solutions for challenges presented by current energy systems.
