About me

My name is David Silva, a student at University of Aveiro, Portugal, where I am majoring in Mechanical Engineering. My main areas of interest are robotics, automation, energy production and product development.

Being a lazy guy, one of my dreams is having robots do all the boring tasks for me – like cooking, cleaning and driving. So, I decided to contribute towards my dream with my dissertation, entitled “Multisensory navigation based on LIDAR for ATLASCAR“, which is related to autonomous driving, more specifically, onboard laser and camera calibration and path planning.
