About Ravi Chadalavada

I’m a Ph.D. candidate working onbi-directional intention communication in Human-Robot Interaction. While doing my M.Sc. in Systems Control and Mechatronics at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, I moved to Mobile Robotics and Olfaction Lab in end of 2015 to pursue my Master’s thesis in HRI and thereafter started my Ph.D. The primary focus of my work is on developing techniques to optimize the interaction between robots and humans in a synergetic manner especially targeting industrial logistics.

I'm currently also working on projects QT-PIE and DASH, which are spin-off's from my Ph.D. research. We are developing intelligent driving assessment technology to objectively measure driving skills, so that, the learning, teaching, and examination of driving skills can be customized for optimal performance. One of the key application areas for this technology is in healthcare, which is currently being investigated in the form of a pilot project called DASH (Semantic eye tracking for driving assessment in healthcare).
