Tom Krajnik (labe.felk.cvut.cz/~tkrajnik) is working in the mobile robotics domain with a particular focus on long-term mobile robot navigation in changing environments. He proposed several methods of representing uncertainty of changing environments leading to gradual improvement of mobile robot efficiency over time. He designed and implemented software libraries for reliable visual navigation and tracking, which were used by the roboticists of the NASA, EPFL, KIT, AIT etc, and contributed to the success of the CTU team during the MBZIRC and DARPA SubT Challenges. He actively cooperates with several research institutes all across the globe and was invited to present his work at world-leading laboratories including CSAIL@MIT, GRASP@UPENN, Oxford or ETH.
