Hi, I'm Riccardo

Hi, I'm Riccardo Polvara, a roboticist, programmer, and PhD student. I'm researching in the fields of obstacle avoidance and path planning at the Autonomous Marine Systems research group, Plymouth University.

What excites me most about these fields are the challenging, multidisciplinary problems that require me to use my background in Computer Engineering, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence to develop an integrated solution. I am particularly motivated by the development and efficient implementation of novel algorithms that enable robots to acquire informations from different sensors, integrate them and find a safe path for navigation purpose.

If you are interested in my work, please let me know—I would be very interested to hear of potential collaborations!
