About Me

Mr Fangwen Yu is a researcher and entrepreneur of 3D cognitive navigation in robotics and neuroscience for the real world. His career vision is to create robots that navigate like humans inspired by the brain.

His research models the neural mechanisms in the brain underlying tasks like 3D navigation and 3D spatial cognition to develop new neuromorphic 3D SLAM and 3D cognitive navigation technologies for space, air, land, sea-based autonomous robots and vehicles. He is now working on the projects of CogNav and NeuroSLAM . His advisors are Prof. Michael Milford, Prof. Jianga Shang, Prof. Youjian Hu.

He is a member of IEEE-RAS, RIN, CCF and CAAI. He is a PhD student (2015~2020 expected) in National Engineering Research Center for GIS and School of Geography and Information Engineering at China University of Geosciences in Wuhan. He is currently a visiting PhD student (2017~2019) in the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) and School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). He received his B.E. degree in Software Engineering and the M.E. degree in Computer Science from China University of Geosciences in 2012 and 2015 respectively, and the B.B.A. degree in Business Administration from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2012.
