Roland Meertens

Welcome to my blog!

I am a product manager at Annotell. I love robotics (especially self-driving cars) and all challenges that come with understanding the world around the robot. It’s important to teach the robot how the world around it works using lots of data, good training algorithms, and good evaluation methods. I’m designing products that solve these problems in an easy way for perception engineers.

Before I developed machine learning solutions for the perception problem of autonomous vehicles at AID- Autonomous Intelligent Driving in Munich. We used lidar and camera data to determine what’s around us, and what traffic participants are going to do. In the end I drove long distances through Munich in our self-developed self-driving car!

Before working at AID I developed deep learning approaches for natural language processing (NLP) problems at Infor, computer vision for drones as a researcher at the TU Delft, and social robotics at SpirOps. During my study Artificial Intelligence at the Radboud University, I specialized in cognitive artificial intelligence and brain-computer interfacing.
