About me

I am Jianhao JIAO, a fourth-year Ph.D student of RAM-LAB at the Robotics Institute of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), supervised by Prof. Ming Liu . I received my B.Eng. from Zhejiang University (ZJU) in 2017.

CV  /  Github  /  Google Scholar

Research

My research interest include SLAM, sensor fusion and computer vision. During my earlier Ph.D phases, I and my coauthors have proposed the first multi-LiDAR SLAM system with online extrinsic calibration and multi-LiDAR object detector with the awareness of extrinsic pertrubation.
Currently, I am focusing event camera-based visual SLAM and optimization methods for various estimation problems.
Featured research are highlighted, and full publication list is here.

Project Experience

Trials of Autonomous Logistic Vehicle in HKUST

I am the co-PI of this project. The project goal is to deply Hercules (check our RAM paper) in UST to deliver food and goods between restaurant and offices. My main responsibility is to design and conduct a series of tests coverin 42 testing items on the campus to demonstrate that the autonomous vehicle is safe, reliable, and intelligent.

We have obtained the stage0 and stage0.5 moving permits from Hong Kong Transport Department. This project has gained great support from HKUST, KAISA, and HKTD. We have got TD’s appreciation that: ``HKUST has been advancing the trials and becoming the first trialing organization in Hong Kong to varry out AVs without a driver/operator on board''.
