About Martin Magnusson

I am a researcher with the Mobile Robotics and Olfaction lab at the AASS research centre.

Please refer to my personal web page within the MRO lab web pages for more information and details about published papers, software, and data. You can also follow me on ResearchGate.

Research

My main research is concerned with localisation and mapping with 3D perception for mobile robots, and in particular efficient and versatile 3D surface representations. I have investigated 3D scan registration and mobile-robot applications such as localisation, loop detection, and semantic analysis of 3D scenes. I have also been investigating methods for using 3D perception in autoloading of piled materials in construction and mining applications.

Since recently, my research also includes mapping methods that go beyond mere geometry, and methods for making use of maps with high uncertainty. I have a particular interest in quantitative quality measures of maps and the methods that are used when constructing them.

I support the international committee for robot arms control and the campaign to stop autonomous military robots.

Teaching

I teach Probabilistic Robotics, Computer Graphics, and Imperative Programming. I am also coordinating our Master's Programme in Robotics and Intelligent Systems.
