Research Areas

I have been involved in autonomous navigation research and currently working on improving the estimation of trajectories and generation of accurate 3D maps by globally/locally aligning RGB-D images. These 3D maps can be useful as a database for mobile robotic platforms in order to perform autonomous navigation while updating the information of the maps. My research areas includes: Robotics, automatization, autonomous-cars, sensor fusion, digital intrumentation, software and hardware programming, visual servoing, autonomous navigation, 3D reconstruction, visual SLAM, computer vision.
