ETRO primarily participates by studying the one, two and three-dimensional data, that are produced by a number of sensors such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Infra Red (IR), and Ultra Sound (US). These data are processed in such a way that a number of useful features are extracted, which are used in their turn to detect, localize and classify the objects that are present in the original scene. ETRO is also involved in the robotics group, in the field of active vision: a fixed camera is used to detect, track and estimate the position of a colored beacon on a robot. Developments include models for color target detection and tracking, models for real time camera control, and models for 3D-target position estimation.
