Achilleas is a PhD candidate at Luleå University of Technology, currently working on semi-autonomous remote aerial manipulation.
He received his Integrated Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Patras, where he was a member of the Robotics Lab of the Division of Systems and Automatic Control. There, he gained industrial experience in automation and academic experience in robotic manipulation, mobile robots, control systems, and computer vision.
His main research interest is in control of aerial manipulation for inspection and maintenance.
Achilleas' PhD project focuses on augmented reality for enhancing semi-autonomous remote aerial manipulation. The goal is to ensure that only the most relevant information between the human operator and the autonomous system are shared intuitively.
Some of the project objectives are to:
handle the seamless integration/fusion of the robotic modelling, path planning, obstacle avoidance, low level flying control and the environmental perception
develop algorithms for autonomous robot to user suggestions
develop methods for user to robot intuitive command
