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
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.
Object recognition, scene understanding, visual learning,
intelligent video surveillance, 3D reconstruction.
Supervised and unsupervised learning, structured learning and
inference, Support Vector Machines (SVM), latent SVM,
Conditional Random Fields (CRF), dimensionality reduction.
Visual SLAM, service robots, aiding systems for the visually
ADAS, visual recognition, occupants monitoring, driver
drowsiness detection, smart driving applications.
