Raju holds a Master's degree in Technical Cybernetics, which he received
in 1996 from the University of Stuttgart, Germany.
Current Research Project
Since October 1996 Raju works on the project "Virtual Environment
based on Multi-Sensor Integration for improved ROV Control". The
aim of the project is to improve the efficiency and utilization of remotely
operated vehicles (ROV's) in the offshore industry by generating a virtual
environment in order to simplify navigation and manipulation tasks for
the ROV operator. The proposed sensory system to perceive the real world
environment consists of a combined optical and acoustical imaging system
and should be able to identify a set of simple known objects such as the
sea bottom, a pipeline and simple underwater steel structures.
