Majored in Signal and Information Processing
Panasonic R&D Center Singapore
My previous work covered a spectrum of stereo imaging, hyperspectral imaging and machine vision. I have been specializing in image processing and computer vision since I joined Panasonic R&D Center Singapore.
In the past 5 years, I have been developing the visual mapping and localization technologies to enable autonomous vehicles or robots to understand their positions. Until now I have worked on different applications including vehicle localization by surrounding-view cameras and wheelchair visual mapping and positioning.
My job is full of excitement and challenges that bring me happiness and satisfaction. Supported by my colleagues and partners in Panasonic, I would like to contribute more to society and make people’s life better.
