I'm Jacobus, but please call me Jaycee. Ever since childhood, I've been interested in looking inside things and finding out how they work. Taking this interest to the further, I decided to study mechatronic engineering and robotics which gave me the opportunity to not only be able to understand the world around me a bit better, but to also to make my own contributions. After finishing my undergraduate and Master's degrees in Mechatronics, I started a PhD in computer science where I looked at ways to apply active vision techniques to a human-assistive task. I recently received my PhD and have since been working as a post-doctorate researcher on an agri-robotics project. This project is looking into a method to integrate GNSS and IMU sensors to localise a sprayer vehicle and use a LiDAR to map out the terrain. These data are then used to generate control signals so that the sprayer booms avoid hitting the crop surface. Outside of work, I have a number of tinkering projects I work on. Ultimately, these are to benefit me, but I love learning new things and often undertake these projects in a way where I'm exposed to things outside my comfort zone. For example, building and hosting this website!
