My name is Michael Pettinati, and I am a first year Ph.D. student at the Georgia Institute
of Technology working in the Mobile Robotics Lab under Dr. Ronald Arkin.
I have spent the last three years doing research in computational vision. My research as
an undergraduate was concerned with how primates perceive motion using optic flow. I
completed a senior thesis examining how there may be a mechanism in the brains of primates to
compute the relative motion of objects using optic flow.
Currently, I am working on a project that hopes to enhance the efficiency of existing
robotic navigation algorithms drawing on biological-inspiration and known vision
