Research Interests

Machine Perception, Off-road Navigation, Bayesian State Estimation, Visual Motion Estimation, Road Detection and Tracking

Current Research Activities

My main focus is on road recognition and tracking in unstructured environment. For this purpose I am developing new methods for model based road detection and terrain flatness analyses incorporating multiple visual features and optical flow. Vision based autonomous convoy driving is my second area of research. This includes the visual detection and classification of the leading vehicle and furthermore generating a suitable trajectory to be taken by the following vehicle.

Detection and tracking of a forest track                          Trajectory generation for autonomous convoi driving
