I am a new PhD student at Department of Cybernetics of Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University (CTU) under supervision of Tomas Svoboda and Karel Zimmermann. Prior to start of my PhD studies, I recieved Bc. (BSc. eqvivalent) and Ing. (MSc. eqvivalent) from Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (CTU), where I studied mechatronics. My diploma thesis was focused on image processing in parking assistance systems.
My research interest is on artificial neural networks, applied on LiDAR (Light detection and ranging) point clouds in order to extract informations necessary for autonomous driving. Most of all by usage of convolutional neural networks for pixel-wise segmentation. My focus is currently on classification of objects in driving scenes based on single point cloud and predicted behavior of pixels from multi-frame bird's eye view maps.
Pixel-wise segmentation using GTA V simulated data
Using additional simulated dataset improved performance on different scenarios not seen in real data
