Vision Algorithms and Software for the Event-driven iCub Robot
Arren received his Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics, Honours I) from the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia in 2008 during which he was also a junior research scholar at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). He completed his PhD from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2013. During this time he worked on affordance learning and sensorimotor coordination using reinforcement learning techniques and Markov decision processes. During 2014 Arren held a Post-doctoral position at QUT in which he also lectured the Roboics Team Project course. His research was focussed on visual place recognition and visual odemtry for SLAM under extreme environmental change.
Arren has been a Post-doctorial researcher at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia since September 2014 working on visual algorithms and software architectures for integration of event cameras on the iCub robot.
