Javier Yebes, PhD. RobeSafe, UAH


I am a Machine Vision Engineer at GOBOTiX Ltd. currently working on R&D consultancy projects for the deployment of vision technology in autonomous robotics. Former PostDoc and PhD student under the supervision of Prof. L. M. Bergasa, who is the director of RobeSafe at the Department of Electronics, University of Alcalá (UAH).

Machines in general and robots in particular could support us in many everyday tasks. In fact, they will be active players in our future lives. Then, let's provide them a smart and accurate perception of the world and, let's try to get closer to the amazing and infinite human perception and learning capabilities. Image sensors capture world information in 2D format, but what are the pixels for a robot or an intelligent vehicle? Let's do some amount of R&D to provide them a meaningful 3D world by using Computer Vision techniques and Machine Learning methods.
