3mE congratulates Veni laureate Javier Alonso Mora
Javier Alonso Mora, assistant professor at the department Cognitive Robotics of 3mE, has been awarded a 250,000 euros Veni grant for his research ‘Robots among humans: safe and socially intuitive navigation.’ In the near future millions of robots, autonomous cars and boats, will coexist with humans. This research will provide algorithms that allow a mobile robot to safely navigate and coordinate with other robots and humans. The Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) is a partner in this project.
