Congratulations to lab member Kartik Prakash on successfully defending his Master’s thesis titled ‘Towards Development of a Novel Structurally Aided Long-Term Odometry and Deployment of Precision Navigation Tasks for Warehouse Applications’. Kartik will be joining Vecna Robotics as a Robotics Engineer.
Congratulations to lab member Karthikeya Parunandi on successfully defending his master’s thesis. Karthikeya’s thesis was on ‘Perturbation Feedback Approaches in Stochastic Optimal Control: Applications to Model-based and Model-free Problems in Robotics’.
Our paper “T-PFC: A Trajectory-Optimized Perturbation Feedback Control Approach” has been accepted for publication in Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L) and also for presentation at IROS-2019, which will be held at Macau, China.
Lab member Karthikeya presents work on “Robust Pose-Graph SLAM Using Absolute Orientation Sensing” (published in IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, vol. 4, no. 2, pp. 981-988) at ICRA 2019 held at Montreal, Canada. Link to the poster: link
Congratulations to EDP lab member Dilshad Raihan on successfully defending his Ph.D. Dilshad’s thesis was on ‘Particle Gaussian mixture filters for general nonlinear non-Gaussian Bayesian estimation’. He will be employed as a Data scientist at Anadarko Petroleum Corporation.
Our heartiest congratulations to EDP Lab member Saurav Agarwal who successfully defended his Ph.D. on Dec 6, 2017. Saurav will be working full-time on a warehouse automation startup after his Ph.D.
Our heartiest congratulations to lab member Mohammadhussein Rafieisakhaei for successfully defending his Ph.D. Mohammad’s work focused on motion planning under uncertainty, particularly optimization-based methods. He will continue his research at TAMU.
