    Thesis Proposal: Real-time Trajectory Planning for Mobile Robot Navigation in Cluttered Environments

    Gaurav Sukhatme (Chair), Laurent Itti, Mihailo R. Jovanovic, Sven Koenig, and Satish Kumar Thittamaranahalli

    Thursday, February 9th, 12:30pm PST

    RTH 406

    Zoom Meeting Details:

    Collision-free mobile robot navigation in cluttered environments is a central problem for many robotics applications. In such environments, obstacles can be static, i.e. stationary, or dynamic, i.e. moving. Dynamic obstacles can be cooperative or non-cooperative. Non-cooperative dynamic obstacles can be interactive, i.e. changing their behavior according to the behavior of other entities, or not interactive. Navigation in such environments with obstacles with different behavior modalities require real-time decision making capabilities.

    In this thesis proposal, we investigate the safety requirements against these different types of objects, and develop a real-time trajectory planning algorithm satisfying the safety requirements. We investigate the context in which the planner should be used and delve into its interaction with other system components, including reactive controllers and global trajectory planners

  • CED MESA Transfer Student Success Workshop #1

    Thu, Feb 09, 2023 @ 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

    Center for Engineering Diversity

    Workshops & Infosessions

    This workshop will highlight academic resources available to youâ”Viterbi Learning Program (VLP) & the Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity (KCLC).

    VLP (a free tutoring service) will cover the basics of making an appointment with a tutor. They'll host a mock session so that participants know what to expect out of an appointment with VLP.

    The KCLC will present 2 time management tools that are useful in academic and professional spaces!

  • PHD Thesis Proposal (John Francis)

    Thu, Feb 09, 2023 @ 01:30 PM - 03:00 PM

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    University Calendar

    PhD Candidate: John Francis
    Date: 02/09/23 (Thursday)

    Committee: Mike Zyda, Carl Kesselman, Jernej Barbic, Scott Fraser, Kate White


    The structural modeling of cells can be accomplished by integrating images of cellular morphology from multiple scales and modalities using a parts based approach. In this thesis, we demonstrate a method for combining the statistical distribution of structures from x-ray tomography and fluorescence microscopy using neural networks to predict the localization of high resolution components in low resolution modalities by using the single cell as a shared unit of transfer.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    EnCorps STEMx Expert Tutor Program is a national volunteer opportunity that supports STEM-focused college students interested in virtually volunteering two hours of their week to mentor and tutor a middle school student in need of academic and math support. EnCorps provides all the necessary onboarding information as well as the tools needed to effectively mentor students. EnCorps have over 150 STEM professionals and college students volunteering with their program. As a thank you to college volunteers EnCorps offers networking opportunities, letters of recommendation, and professional development opportunities.
