Sean McMahon

Sean graduated from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) with a Bachelor of Engineering, majoring in Mechatronics with honours in 2014. Currently a PhD student with the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV). Sean’s research focuses on visual affordance detection for improved robotic perceptual understanding in unconstrained environments. A key application area his research is hazard detection on construction sites. This is because hazards are defined by their of affordance rather than their object type; for example, a ladder leaning against a wall is less of a trip hazard compared to a ladder lying horizontally on the ground. Sean has won best 3 minute thesis presentation at the Robovis conference in 2016 and has undertaken numerous teaching roles in advanced robotics and microprocessor courses.
