Xipeng Wang received his PhD from University of Michigan in 2019 for his work in robust and efficient robot localization and mapping. He advisor was Edwin Olson (Professor, CEO of May Mobility). During his time as a PhD student in APRIL lab, he developed several open source localization and mapping algorithm (AprilSAM, FLAG, MOSS) applied on ground robots served for transportation or exploration purposes.
