Jie Wang is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Offroad Robotics, Ingenuity Labs at Queen’s University, Canada. He is passionate about robotics and a big believer that intelligent robots will play a significant role in our daily lives. He is interested in technologies that improve the autonomy of robotic systems, especially a combination of model-based and learning-based methods to achieve a high-performance robot interaction with real-world, dynamic, unstructured environments safely and effectively.

He received the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering, specializing in robotics control, from the University of Calgary, Canada. The research focused on locomotion mode selection and motion planning of a leg-tracked quadrupedal robot. By proposing an energy criterion-based approach, locomotion mode transitions between tracked and legged locomotion to negotiate steps were achieved automatically. Prior to joining the Offroad Robotics group, Jie worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Calgary and York University. He developed and implemented perception solutions for micro aerial vehicles including visual SLAM and CNN-based object detection and tracking.
