Φ – Robotics Research Group (Φ-R² Group) is held in the Informatics Institute and aims to study problems related to the use of robotics in field and indoor (FI = phonetically Φ) environments. We have been conducting researches on SLAM, self-localization, integrated exploration and ontologies using aerial, underwater and mobile robotics during last years in Brazil. Our group has solid relationship with different laboratories and groups around the globe, that include, groups from USA, France, Canada, Egypt, Hungary, Portugal and so on.
