Nived joined the ORI as a post-doctoral research assistant in 2021. He is working with the Dynamic Robot Systems Group on navigation and mapping tasks for field robots.
During his Ph.D. at the University of Bonn, Nived worked on techniques for localization and mapping for robots in agricultural fields. His research focus has been on developing robust registration techniques for SLAM systems using vision and LiDAR data acquired over long time intervals. Prior to that, Nived received his master's degree in Robotics from Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN), France, and the University of Genoa, Italy in 2015.
