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 techniques.
