Pablo Lanillos

Activity: Former Collaborator

Pablo Lanillos received the M.Sc. degree in computer sciences and the Ph.D. degree in computer engineering, specialization robotics (July 2013), on the subject “minimum time search of mobile targets in uncertain environments” from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), Spain. In 2006 he joined the Department of Computer Architecture and Automatic Control, UCM, and as a PhD candidate he has been a visiting researcher at the Aerospace Control Laboratory (ACL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (LIA), École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne; and the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR), University of Sydney. From 2012 to 2013 he has also been working as a researcher assistant in the optical department of the Physics faculty (UCM) developing machine learning algorithms for hand written text recognition. He was a a member of the Spanish Government funded projects: “System for surveillance, search and rescue in the sea by means of collaboration of autonomous marine and air vehicles” and “Planning, simulation and control platform for multiple aerial and marine vehicles cooperation”.

His main research interests are: probabilistic decision making, Bayesian search, autonomous robots coordination, information fusion and behavior-based robotics.

He is currently a Postdoctoral Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR) of the University of Coimbra, within the scope of the CASIR project: Coordinated Control of Stimulus-Driven and Goal-Directed Multisensory Attention within the Context of Social Interaction with Robots (PTDC/EEI-AUT/3010/2012).
