Deep Learning
Computer Vision
Autonomous Vehicle/Robot

During my Ph.D., I was a team leader in two projects which are "Visual Perception for Autonomous Driving" 
and "Local Invariant Binary Feature". I am an Autonomy Systems Researcher qualified with strong background 
knowledge of computer vision, sensor/calibration, perception algorithms, machine learning, and mapping.

In my thesis, I suggested A.I. Sensor, which can be embedded in Autonomous Vehicle or CCTV in the near future.
( Here is my Portfolio written in Korean. )
