SPS Seminar - Towards the automation of terrain-based prediction and classification: from landing at the seafloor to mapping planetary surfaces

Dates
Thursday, January 26, 2023 - 14:00 to 15:00

When:  Thursday 26 January at 14.00

Where:  Microsoft Teams – Robert Hooke/Online

Speaker:  Jose Cappelletto (Southampton University)

Hosted by: Alexander Barrett

Abstract:

In this seminar we will describe and discuss how to bridge the gaps in data resolution and existing modalities in the application of field robotics. We will explore the fundamentals of using a predictive framework capable of inferring high-resolution terrain interpretations on large-scale low-resolution maps in an automated and principled way. With this approach it is possible to increase the efficiency of robotic mapping operations in multiple domains and environments, such as those encountered during underwater, aerial and planetary exploration.

Short Bio:
 

Undergrad in electronics engineering and master on mechatronics in Simon Bolivar University where I worked as researcher and assistant professor for 10+ years. My research covers mobile robotics, computer vision and machine learning. Currently, I'm finishing my PhD in Southampton University where I am using data-driven approaches to automate terrain interpretation for field robotics operations.
