Qualifications

Ph.D. by research in engineering

Swinburne University of Technology

Mathematical Modelling and Applications of Spherical Catadioptric Omnidirectional View Sensors

The research investigates the practical usability of spherical catadioptric omnidirectional view sensors (COVS) in the field of robotics. There are four themes covered in the overall research effort — A mathematical modelling of a closed-form mapping solution, a development of a spherical COVS view conversion technique, a development of a high speed parallel execution of the said technique, and a design of a novel image feature descriptor for COVS. The research work was partially funded by the MOHE Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS/2/2010/TK/SWIN/03/02).
