Overview

I am Dr. Maryam Banitalebi Dehkordi a Research Associate at the School of Engineering and a member of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Human-Machine Systems (IROHMS) at Cardiff University. 

I received a master’s degree in mechatronics and automatic control engineering from University Technology Malaysia, in 2009, and a Ph.D. degree in Perceptual Robotics - Innovative Technologies from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna of Pisa, Italy in 2014. 

I have a broad range of experiences in robotics, including assistive robots, mobile robots, agricultural robots, Industrial robots, humanoid robots, parallel manipulators, navigation, and outdoor autonomous vehicles. In the past, I worked on different projects such as DOC (Dispositivo di Orientamento Ciechi) in Italy, and an Innovate UK funded project AgriRobot (Autonomous agricultural robot system for precision spraying) in industry in the UK.

Before joining the Cardiff University, I pursued my career at different institutes and industries including University Technology Malaysia, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in Italy, Technical University of Munich and NavVis GmbH in Germany, and Innova Integra Limited in the UK.

My research interests include Human-Robot Interaction, Explainable Robotics, Assistive Robotics, and the development of autonomous systems for robotic platforms.

Human-Robot Interaction Laboratory

I am also the manager of the Human-Robot Interaction Laboratory. The laboratory has cutting-edge equipment for teaching and research, including:

  • Care-o-bot 4 (advanced service robot)
  • Vicon motion tracking system
  • HTC VIVE virtual reality headset
