Carol Martinez

Carol Martínez is a Post-Doctoral researcher at the Computer Vision Group at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). She received the Degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the Universidad Autónoma de Bucaramanga (UNAB), Colombia, in June 2004. In 2007, she joined the Computer Vision Group at UPM, and since then, she has been conducting research in the area of computer vision for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. In May 2009, she obtained the MSc in Robotics and Automation from the UPM, and in the same year she started her Ph.D. studies. During her studies, in July 2010, she was a research visitor in the Australian Research Center for Aerospace and Automation ARCAA, where she worked in a visual odometry strategy for aerial vehicles; and in June 2011, she was a research visitor in the University of Bristol, UK, where her work was focused on visual tracking for autonomous air-to-air refuelling tasks.

 

In July 2013 she obtained her Ph.D. in Robotics and Automation from the UPM in the area of “Visual Tracking, Pose Estimation, and Control for Aerial Vehicles”. Currently, she is a Post-Doctoral researcher at UPM working in the I2L intelligent power line inspection project whose main objective is to reduce the inspection time by means of computer vision and machine learning techniques. Her main research area is the use of computer vision techniques for UAV civilian applications.
