Rajibul's homepage:


Rajibul Huq completed a Ph.D. in 2006 on intelligent control of mobile robots at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) in Canada. His Ph.D. work involves analysis and design of Fuzzy Discrete Event System (FDES) based sensory signal processing for autonomous mobile robots. He worked as a Post Doctoral researcher in Remote Aerial Vehicle for Environmental monitoring (RAVEN) project at MUN, where he investigated on vision-based landing and airborne obstacle avoidance of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Rajibul received an Industrial Research & Development Fellowship (IRDF) from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and joined Quanser Inc. in 2007. In Quanser, he was involved with several R&D projects, such as, cooperative control framework of unmanned systems and mobile robot control framework. After the completion of NSERC IRDF in 2009, he started working as a Research Scientist at ATR Intelligent Robotics & Communication Lab in Japan, where he investigated side-by-side walking for human-robot interaction. He joined the Intelligent Assistive Technology and Systems Lab at the University of Toronto in 2010 and is involved with the rehabilitation and personal robot projects. He also received the HCTP postdoctoral fellowship in 2012.
