Dr. Giorgos A. Demetriou received his Ph.D. in computer science-robotics and his M.S. in computer engineering from the Center for Advanced Computer Studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Lafayette, Louisiana, USA in 1998 and 1994, respectively. His Ph.D. specialization is in Robotics. His B.S. degree is in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Lafayette, Louisiana, USA. Since 2006 he has been with the Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department of Frederick University, Lemesos, Cyprus. At Frederick University he is the director of the Robotics and Automated Systems Lab (RAS Lab) and the co-director for the Akadimia Rompotikis (Robotics Academy). Before that he was with the Computer Engineering Department of Purdue University, Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA and with the Computer Science department of the University of Southern Mississippi-Gulf Coast (USM-GC), Long Beach Mississippi, USA. At Purdue University he was an assistant professor of computer engineering. At USM-GC, he served as an assistant professor, as the director of the Robotics and Graphics Laboratory and as the coordinator for the computer science graduate and undergraduate programs. He received funding and was involved in numerous research projects funded by the EU, the National Research Foundation of Cyprus (ΙΠΕ), the National Science Foundation and other organizations. He has published book chapters and several journal and conference papers. He was the co-editor for several international conference proceedings and the chair for many international conferences. He was in the organizing committee of a number of international conferences. He served as an evaluator for the IEEE Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems, the European Union, the Research Promotion Foundation of Cyprus, the Greek government, many conferences and others.

Dr. Demetriou is the founder and director of the Robotics and Automated Systems Lab (RAS Lab)
and the co-founder and co-director of Akadimia Rompotikis (Ακαδημία Ρομποτικής).


Robotics and Automated Systems Lab

The Robotics and Automated Systems Lab (RAS Lab) of Frederick University carries out research on a number of sub-fields of intelligent robotics, mostly mobile systems. The laboratory houses a number of custom and premade robotic systems.
RAS research concentrates on industry and funding organizations funded projects. But, several internally funded projects are also being developed in the laboratory. It provides students and researchers with an opportunity to work on cutting edge robotic technologies and in the development of new robotics applications. The majority of the work done in the laborotory is on robot and automated systems controllers, control software, perception, sensor fusion, navigation and path planning of autonomous or semi-autonomous systems.


Ακαδημία Ρομποτικής (Akadimia Rompotikis)

Η Ακαδημία Ρομποτικής του Πανεπιστημίου Frederick προσφέρει στις εγκαταστάσεις του Πανεπιστημίου στη Λεμεσό, μαθήματα ρομποτικής για την εκμάθηση χρήσης διαφόρων πακέτων ρομποτικής (κατασκευή ρομπότ και εκμάθηση γλωσσών προγραμματισμού), αρχές ρομποτικής, χρήσης της ρομποτικής ως εκπαιδευτικό εργαλείο και για προετοιμασία για συμμετοχή στην ολυμπιάδα ρομποτικής και άλλους διαγωνισμούς ρομποτικής. Η Ακαδημία Ρομποτικής, έχει τα εργαλεία που προάγουν τη μαθηματική και μηχανική ικανότητα, καθώς και τεχνολογικές και επιστημονικές γνώσεις για όλες τις βαθμίδες εκπαίδευσης.
