Personal profile

Research interests


Pejman Iravani is a Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering. His research is in the area of Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. His current work aims taking robots from factories into populated environments.


Pejman's current research is looking into the technologies that will make robots operational in real-world environments such as homes, workplace, hospitals and so on. His vision is that within the next 10-15 years robots will be doing most of the unpleasant jobs that currently humans are doing.

Pejman and his team are developing various technologies, including sensing materials for artificial skins, machine learning methods for robots to learn autonomously, and control methods to make robots safe when in close proximity to humans.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
