Gerard completed his Bachelor of Engineering and Science at ANU in 2018, majoring in mechatronic systems and applied mathematics. In 2017 he began work as a research assistant for the ANU node of the Centre, working on the perception system of a robotic harvesting platform. For this work he has looked into calibration, image segmentation and 3D reconstruction problems in real-time, on-farm environments.
Gerard started his PhD in robotic vision under the supervision of Chief Investigator Robert Mahony at ANU in 2019. His PhD topic will involve investigating the use of occlusion information to enhance object reconstruction and segmentation in detailed, cluttered environments. The application of the project will remain the perception system of the robotic harvesting platform.
