Welcome to Institute for Systems and Robotics - Lisbon (ISR-Lisbon).
ISR-Lisbon is a university based R&D institution where
multidisciplinary advanced research activities are developed in the
areas of Robotics and Information Processing, including Systems and
Control Theory, Signal Processing, Computer Vision, Optimization, AI
and Intelligent Systems, Biomedical Engineering. Applications include
Autonomous Ocean Robotics, Search and Rescue, Mobile Communications,
Multimedia, Satellite Formation, Robotic Aids.
ISR-Lisbon is affiliated to Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the School of Engineering of the Technical University of Lisbon. Most of its PhD researchers are teaching staff of IST.
Since 1996, ISR-Lisbon is periodically subject to evaluation, by
international panels of independent scientists organized by the
Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education. In the two
evaluation exercises organized in 1996 and 2000 ISR has been rated as
EXCELLENT (The highest grade awarded by the panel).
ISR, together with three other partner research institutions, IN+, IMAR-Azores and CREMINER is, since November 2001, an Associate Laboratory.
ISR-Lisbon participates in the CMU-Portugal Program. This participation relies on an integrated research and educational Dual PhD Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering, specially focused on Networked Sensors, Communication, and Decision Systems with applications in the area of Critical Infrastructures and Risk Assessment.
