Biography

Colin completed his DPhil with the Mobile Robotics Group in October of 2014 and was a member of Lady Margaret Hall. His thesis presented a new approach to long-term, vision-based localisation across extreme weather and lighting conditions (see Publications).

Colin also holds a BASc (2009) in Engineering Science (Aerospace Option) from the University of Toronto and an MASc (2011) in Aerospace Science and Engineering from the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, where he worked with the Autonomous Space Robotics Lab.

Colin  is now a senior software engineer for the MRG spin-out company Oxbotica.


 Research

The main goal of my research is to enhance the state of the art in navigation systems for autonomous vehicles. I am currently exploring robust vision techniques for long-term navigation in urban environments, with a particular emphasis on exploiting scene priors gathered by a survey vehicle. Below is a more detailed description of my current and past projects.

Past Projects with ASRL, University of Toronto

Visual Teach and Repeat Using Appearance-Based Lidar

Visual Teach and Repeat (VT&R) is an effective method for autonomously repeating a previously driven route without the need for a global positioning system. This work was concerned with long-range route repeating in outdoor, unstructured environments. As inconsistent lighting conditions pose a problem for camera-based systems, this work built upon previous research on applying appearance-based computer vision techniques to laser intensity images for motion estimation (see below). The resulting system was field tested in a planetary analogue environment over an entire diurnal cycle, covering more than 11km with an autonomy rate of 99.7% of the distance traveled.

Appearance-Based Methods Using Lidar Sensors

This work was concerned with lighting-invariant pose estimation in outdoor environments. The goal was to exploit the rich heritage of the appearance-based visual odometry pipeline traditionally used with camera imagery, and apply these techniques to laser reflectance images.
