Michael Jenkin is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, and a member of the Centre for Vision Research and IC@L at York University, Canada. Working in the fields of visually guided autonomous robots and virtual reality, he has published over 200 research papers including co-authoring Computational Principles of Mobile Robotics with Gregory Dudek and a series of co-edited books on human and machine vision with Laurence Harris. Michael has worked on a range of different intelligent systems including autonomous systems for survey tasks in nuclear power plants, crime scene investigation and scene remediation, and underwater and surface robot systems for environment monitoring. His current research interests include work on sensing and interaction strategies for intelligent autonomous machines, the application of VR to physical therapies, and the understanding of the perception of self-motion and orientation in unusual environments including short- and long-duration microgravity.
