MSc. Raúl Acuña Godoy
Phd Student at TU Darmstadt - Germany
I am PhD student at TU Darmstadt. From 2008 to 2014 I was a lecturer at the Department of Electronics and Circuits at Simón Bolívar University in Caracas, Venezuela and member of the R&D Mechatronics Group. I received my Bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering and my Master's in Science degree (Mechatronics Specialization) at Simón Bolívar University.
In 2012 I founded the Wiki Wikitronica as an initiative to consolidate all the knowledge generated in the Electronic Engineering Career at Simón Bolívar University. Also, I am the founder of the Futbot student research group for the study of agents and robots which collaborate in a game of robot soccer, mainly with the goal to be the first Venezuelan team who participates in the Soccer Robot Competition Robocup. In 2013 I was the advisor of a student team (GIATRONICA) for the national robotic competition CSS Bots in the Open Category. This team obtained the first place in that competition.
My main research topics during my PhD include: Cooperative Robotics and Cooperative Perception for mobile robots. Currently, I am working with a mixture of ground and aerial unmanned robots. More information about my research at TU Darmstadt can be found here.
