About me…

ProfilePicture-Yeshasvi smallI am a small town boy from India. I graduated with major in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Pondicherry University after which I worked for a little over two years as an Electrical Engineer at MRF Tyres Ltd in Pondicherry. I got accepted for a Double Degree Erasmus Mundus master program titled EMARO (European Master in Advanced Robotics). I obtained a Master Degree in Advanced Robotics from Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France and a Master Degree in Robotics Engineering from University of Genoa, Italy. My research interests are Humanoids, Cognitive Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

 

Why I joined PACE…

Research in the PACE network primarily deals with investigations into human motor control in highly complex environments. This is fairly a complex topic which can be explored at different fronts. Coming from engineering and robotics background I strongly believe that investigations in this area can result in effective robots used in rescue missions. PACE network under the aegis of ITN Marie Curie funding provides a perfect platform for researchers like me to join forces with peers from several backgrounds. This facilitation of excellent collaboration is one of my motivations to join PACE network.

My Project…

Well basically robots are nut and bolts, although many recent advances have been made in the hardware design robots are addressing a non­scientific audience structurally rigid. The prime case of complex environment considered in my research topic is articulated objects, like doors, scissors etc. simply put these objects have different parts attached through a joint and hence the motion of the object parts is restricted according to the joint type. We humans with excellent perceptual and motor skills learn to recognize and manipulate them easily overtime. The same capability for robots is very much needed for it to be effective and productive in every day naturally environments. Hence the title of my topic is “The control and Representation of Articulated Objects ­ Insights from Robots”.

Secondment…

SoftBank Robotics, Aldeberan, Paris ­ I currently work with the humanoid iCub platform and I find the latest Romeo platform, designed as a service robot, interesting to work with as a part of my secondment.
