Ph.D. Student in Robotics at Oregon State University, the United States
Thank you for visiting my website. I am Masafumi Endo, a Ph.D. student in Robotics at Oregon State University.
I will start to study control and optimization theories for robotic manipulators under the guidance of Prof. Burak Sencer from this fall.
Previously, I completed my M.E. 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 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 for following the paths.
My research objective is to create agile mobile robots who have robustness, high efficiency, and adaptability to accomplish long-term operations even in challenging, unknown environments.
