Visiting Researchers in the Autonomous Systems Lab
Three visiting researchers from the PERSEO project have worked with us since October.
Three visiting researchers from the PERSEO project have joined our Autonomous Systems Lab to collaborate with our team to enhance Human-Robot Collaboration in real scenarios.
We are really happy with the stay of our researchers, who each come from a different lab:
- Lorenzo Ferrini is working in PAL Robotics (Barcelona) to enhance the understanding of what is important in a scene, where does a robot needs to focus and how this focus can improve the social and physical interaction between the humans and the robots. Moreover, he is also part of our team as he is supervised by Prof Dongheui Lee in his PhD career path!
- Francesco Vigni is working in University of Naples Federico II (Italy), focusing on exploiting the social cues during multimodal Human-Robot Interactions in order to i.e. influence persuasion. His goal is to drive the future of social robotics towards inclusive agents that can easily adapt to cross-cultural behaviors and perform personalized interactions.
- Vasileios Mizardis is working in Noosware (Netherlands) focusing in SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) for mobile robots. He has helped our new TiAGO robot to navigate through our lab facilities, understanding the humans in it as well as the environment.
It was a great experience to work with our visiting researchers and also to enjoy the time with them! This is another proof of how our lab closely collaborate with both industry and academia!
