Abhinav is working on incorporating tactile sensing into active perception systems.
Chris is designing observability- and noise-aware state estimators for aerial and ground robots.
Hi! If you got here, you are probably trying to get to know me a little better. I am a roboticist but I am not a machine, feel free to send me an email and we could chat, drink a cup of coffee or grab a beer! My motivation to further study robotics stems from the fact that although robots are incredibly sophisticated, fast and precise machines, they are still inefficient, clumsy and dangerous. Keeping these marvels of innovation in controlled environment prevent them from tackling some of the most important challenges of this century alongside people. I envision a future where robots will have the ability to interact intelligently and safely with their environment using previously gathered knowledge, common sense and reasoning.
Andrej is designing a new generation of lidar-specific semantic mapping algorithms for indoor environments.
