About me

Hello, and welcome to my page,

I’m a PhD student in the Mobile Robotics and Olfaction Lab at the University of Örebro.

My research interest is mainly about “how to use prior information to help robots help us”. I work on using sketch maps, as in drawings of floor plans, and emergency maps, for robot navigation and mapping. I also have a personal blog where I talk about things, most of them related to what I do now.

That would be the kind of things I’m working on:

An emergency map integrated into the robot map. The robot can now plan its way toward unexplored areas.

Softwares

I have some software available, some from my research and others not:

Research

  • maoris: a method to segment maps from different modalities. Tested on robot build maps and sketch maps. See the post here.
  • Auto Complete Graphs: a method to integrate emergency maps into a map build by a robot. The goal of this program is summarised in this post.
  • Sketch Map Matching: a method to match a sketch map to a model map. There is also a ui to test it and post about it

Others

Datasets

  • Sketch maps dataset: a dataset of 25 sketches and associated segmentation ground truth by two users.
