At the University of Bologna, Dept. of Mathematics, our team works at the use of topology and geometry in robotic applications since 1988. Mainly, we deal with computer vision by means of a shape descriptor (the Size Functions) conceived and developed by Patrizio Frosini. But our interests cover a fairly wide area reaching from the abstractions of manifold topology to robot navigation and to a concrete project for the blind (VIDET).
