Curriculum Vitae

Arne Peters is a Ph.D. candidate currently working in the Chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Real-time Systems at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). He completed his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computational Visualistics at the University of Koblenz. He wrote his Master thesis on the topic of “Detection of Unknown, Convex Objects in RGB-D Data” with the collaboration of KUKA.
He is now working on calibration and SLAM with actuated depth sensors. His further research interests include computer vision for robotic navigation and manipulation, motion planning, 3d reconstruction and human-robot interaction.
