I received a degree in Computer Engineering by the University of Balearic Islands in 1992 and a PhD in Computer Science in 2005 by the University of Balearic Islands. Currently, I am Associate Professor at the University of the Balearic Islands. I have taught several courses from the Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Telecomunications Engineering studies, comprising topics such as computer organization, operating systems, embedded systems, control systems and perception systems/computer vision/pattern recognition.
Alberto Ortiz is a founding member of the SRV group. He has been the leader of several local and European projects on mobile robotics. He is author and co-author of more than 100 publications related with computer vision and mobile robotics, including peer-reviewed conference communications and journal papers, and has served as reviewer for a number of international conferences and journals in the same areas. His current research interests are motion estimation, localization and mapping (using vision, laser, etc), visual guidance of mobile robots, control architectures for mobile robots, and pattern recognition. He is as well member of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Soc. (RAS) and also of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR).
