About Me


My name is Chengyuan Yan(闫程远), now a computer vision engineer at Oculus. I am developing algorithms to locate and track the Virtual Reality (VR) devices. Please see mLinkedIn page for more information.

Before joining Oculus I was with iRobot, where I worked on the guidance, navigation and control (GNC) algorithms for the floor-cleaning robot, Roomba. 

I received a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2015, and a bachelor's degree in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 2013.

I like DIY and work on robotics projects. This page contains a brief introduction to some of my works.

I do enjoy cycling, music and photography. Maybe you would find something interesting in the gallery
