The H2020 project "EXCELLABUST - Excelling LABUST in marine robotics", ACROSS CoE - Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems, IEEE Croatia Robotics and Automation Chapter and ZCI-DATACROSS will organize the lecture:
"From knowing where you are to understanding where you are"
which will be held by Prof. Patric Jensfelt, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
The lecture will take place on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, starting at 11:00 in the Gray Hall of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing.
You can find out more about the lecturer and the seminar in the detailed news content.
In this presentation, I will outline our work on mobile robots which started as a quest to find the position of the robot and over time has shifted to understanding the environment and how to act in it. I will also mention some examples of entrepreneurial endeavours connected to the research, sometimes by design and sometimes out of surprise.
Patric Jensfelt is a professor of computer science specialised in robotics at the Department of Robotics, Perception and Learning at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and the Centre for Autonomous Systems (CAS), both at KTH. His main research interests center around autonomy for mobile robots, in particular, aspects connected to navigation, localization, and mapping. He is the co-founder of Intelligent Machines Stockholm AB and Volumental AB.
