Ph.D. projects

For the following students I served as supervisor (co-promotor):

  • Patrick van der Smagt (1995):``Visual robot arm guidance using neural networks''
  • Joris van Dam (1998): ``Environment modelling for mobile robots: neural learning for sensor fusion''
  • Anuj Dev (1998):``Visual navigation on optical flow''
  • Stephan ten Hagen (2001):``Continuous State Space Q-Learning for Control of Nonlinear Systems''
  • Roland Bunschoten (2003):``Mapping and Localization from a Panoramic Vision Sensor''
  • Joris Portegies Zwart (2003):``Aircraft Recognition from Features Extracted from Measured and Simulated Radar Range Profiles''
  • Sjaak Verbeek (2004):``Mixture Models for Clustering and Dimension Reduction''
  • Wojciech Zajdel (2006): ``Bayesian Visual Surveillance''
  • Athanasios Noulas (2010): ''Probabilistic Audiovisual Fusion''
  • Marcel Heerink (2010): ''Assessing acceptance of assistive social robots by older adults''
  • iCatwithElderly

The following two students will soon defend their theses:
  • Olaf Booij (2010): ''Efficient view based mapping for wheeled robots''
  • Tim van Kasteren (2010): ''Temporal Probabilistic Models for Activity Recognition from Sensor Network Data for Health Monitoring Elderly''
