Lab visit in York Unversity at the Tsotsos lab
As we hit Toronto on our way back to Germany we took our chance to visit the active and attentive vision lab at York university in Toronto. The special thing about this group is that they attempt to solve computer vision problems like humans do. Meaning they focus on research on monocular or stereo camera solutions instead of RGB-D cameras. Markus Solbach, an old study friend of Raphael is currently pursuing his PhD. there and spontaneously organized a lab visit including talks of the group members and integrated us as well. So we gave a short talk about what we do for RoboCup and what our research focusses on. After the talks we were invited to join a panel discussion about robotics. What an amazing day!
This morning we were in a sports bar and saw the soccer match.
Currently we are waiting at the Toronto airport to fly bag. Our luggage pieces with Lisa inside are already checked in. When you want to see Lisa in action head to the Visual Computing day on Friday. There we show Lisa and TIAGo, if he arrives in time.
