Geert De Cubber was born on February 13, 1979 in Halle, Belgium. In 2001, he received the degree of Master in Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), with as specialization Electro-Mechanical Engineering. He then obtained a PhD. for his research in the field of 3-dimensional reconstruction of natural scenes perceived by mobile robots. This PhD. and the associated research project were part of a joined research effort between the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Belgian Royal Military Academy (RMA). Within the group of Unmanned Vehicle Centre, Geert’s main task is to apply computer vision techniques to mobile robots, rendering these robots able to perceive, analyze, and – to some degree – understand their environment. More specifically, three-dimensional reconstruction and cognitive vision approaches are investigated with the aim to port the capabilities of the human eyesight to intelligent robots.
