Background and Experiences
Hongyi Liu got his Ph.D. degree in human-robot collaboration, KTH. He received his BSc in robotics from Southeast University, China, MSc in system control and robotic from KTH, Sweden. Before joining KTH, he worked in ABB Robotics as a data scientist.
Hongyi's research revolves around context awareness and the application of human-robot collaboration:
- Human motion recognition and prediction
- Multimodal robot control
- Machine learning and deep learning for human-robot collaboration
- Safety issues in human-robot collaboration
- System design and architecture for intuitive robot control
EU H2020 project. I am currently working as a task leader to lead the task of industrial robot dynamic path planning in the human-robot collaboration environment.
EU H2020 project. I am currently working on gesture command for human-robot collaboration in the project.
