      Research

      Research Topics, Overview of the research

      • Research Topics

        Human robot interaction, mobile robot, acoustic signal processing, sensor fusion
      • Overview of the research

        The goal of the research is to give robots the ability to understand the complex soundscape of everyday life.
        In particular, I am interested in combining mobility and multi-modal perception for improving social interactions between Humans and robots in real environments.
