Biography (more>>)
Mihail Pivtoraiko is one of the engineers of the multi-institutional robotic software architecture (CLARAty), as well as a collaborator on robotics research tasks. Mihail completed his M.S. degree at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University in 2005, where he participated in several mobile robotics projects sponsored by DARPA, in particular PerceptOR (Perception for Off-Road robots) and LAGR (Learning Applied to Ground Robots). His research and development role culminated in leading the task of developing the navigation system for LAGR robots. Mihail was also directly involved in a Mars Technology Program research task.

Mihail received a dual B.S. degree in Computer Engineering and Physics, and a minor in French in 2003. At Portland State he was involved in the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory. Mihail's areas of research interest primarily include motion planning, modeling and system identification, and state estimation. Click here to view my school webpage.
