Postgraduate Opportunities

I am currently looking for Mphil and Ph.D. Students for conducting research in artificial intelligence for autonomous driving technologies. Our current ongoing project involves building high definition maps for robot navigation efficiently using collaborative methods. We teach robots to understand the sensor data from camera, LIDAR, etc from semantic level and share their knowledge effectively with each other.

Interested student may contact me via email directly.
