Robotics Ph.D. Student/Graduate Research Assistant at Oregon State University, the United States
Thank you for visiting my website. I am Masafumi Endo, a Robotics Ph.D. student at Oregon State University, under the supervision of Prof. Burak Sencer. Currently, I am working on a learning-based cycle-time prediction for robotic manipulators.
I previously completed my master's studies in The Space Robotics Lab., directed by Prof. Kazuya Yoshida at Tohoku University, Japan. My main research topic was the development of a planetary roving vehicle for the exploration of celestial surfaces such as the Moon and Mars.
I have been interested in both fundamental and applicational robotic theories for autonomous mobile robots, particularly predictive perception, path/motion planning, and control to follow planned paths.
My research objective is to create agile mobile robots that have robustness, high efficiency, and adaptability to accomplish long-term operations even in challenging, unknown environments.
