Product Portfolio
  • Welcome to Center for Intelligent Technologies

  • The main focus in general is in promotion of new trends in Information Technology and also to support the applications of intelligent technologies in Slovakia. Evolving Distributed Framework for Companion Robotic Systems is the main focus of the CIT in long term research. The testbed for this proof of concept engineering research is the NAO robotic Humanoid platform. Interaction, tele-operation, learning by example, emotion technology, advance image processing, Robot Internet Interface to Cyberspace and many other issues. We do focus on computational Intelligence tools including other related bio-inspired approaches.

    In the future we are not linked to the platform but linked to the main aim to contribute to the creation of a worldwide software framework for Internet of Things e.g. Robots. Ambient Intelligence is the global direction including application of Computational and Artificial Intelligence in Robotics, Smart Spaces and Houses.

    The research team has extensive publishing activity and participation in grant projects (including international projects). Part of the research team is also 13 internal doctoral students. Members of the team are members of international scientific committees (IFAC Technical Committee TC 4.3. Robotics, IEE The Institute of Electrical Engineers, Inc.), editorial board of journals (e.g. Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems (CC)) and they are involved in organizing conferences (Robotics in Education) and competitions on robotics (Istrobot, Robotour). Members of the team regularly participate in competitions on robotics in which they, for example, achieved the second place in international competition called Robotour


    Center for Intelligent Technology is equipped with 16 NAO Humanoid Robots for research and educational purposes towards Intelligent technologies.
    Annually the branch of AI finishaprx. 25 people in Bc. and MSc. . PhD level is also very active - we do have 11 alumni in AI past 15 years in branch of AI.
