Curriculum Vitae

Hu Cao is a PhD candidate in the Chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Real-time Systems under the supervision of Prof.Knoll . He graduated from state key laboratory of advanced design and manufacturing for vehicle body of Hunan University, China. Before coming to TUM, he did research in the Intelligent Automobile Research Institute of Automobile College of Tongji University. His research area focuses on Computer Vision, Neuromorphic Egnieering, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Algorithms.

Research Interests

  • Deep learning: object recognition, 2D/3D detection, tracking, parking slot detection, lane segmentation;

  • Surveillance based on fisheye camera: people detection and counting;

  • Robotics: visual manipulation sensing and control.

Thesis topics

  • Topic 1: Visual manipulation sensing for robot grasping learning.

  • Topic 2: Vehicle/people detection and tracking for intelligent transportation system.

  • Topic 3: Parking slot detection based on deep neural network.

If you are interested in these thesis topics, please send me an email with your background and skills.
