I am a PhD Student in the cognitive system research group. I work mainly on autonomous driving related projects. My work is focused on human related, computer-vision based algorithms. Main tasks include pedestrian detection, pose recognition, action recognition and human intention prediction. My approach is heavily simulation based, so I work with motion tracking (optical Vicon system and IMUs) data as well as 3D scanned models as data source. Data for computer vision algorithms is retrieved from self built simulations, currently based on Unity®.
