    About Tomas Krajnik

    Prior to joining the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous systems in 2013, I spend 8 years performing research for the Intelligent and Mobile Robotics Group of the Czech Technical University. My research concerns robot navigation, environment modeling, reasoning and planning.  I have participated in 3 large-scale EU robotics projects, 2 international (with GRASP in USA and UBA in Argentina) projects and acted as a principal investigator in 4 projects on a national level. I have co-authored over 60 scientific publications and successfully supervised approx. 20 master or bachelor theses.

    During my PhD studies at CTU, I have designed, implemented, theoretically and experimentally verified a monocular-based mobile robot navigation method, which allows a ground or aerial vehicle to autonomously traverse long paths in unstructured environments for long periods of time. The method was nominated for a Czech Head 2010 Doctorandus price (by prof. Ivan Havel and prof. Kevin Warwick), and won mobile robot contests RoboTour 2008 and 2009. Some of the software modules that I implemented are nowadays used by roboticists in JPL/NASA, MIT, EPFL etc. Further info here:
