Komol Md Mostafizur Rahman

PhD Researcher

Md Mostafizur Rahman Komol is a PhD student at QUT Centre for Robotics, jointly with CSIRO Data61 Robotics Group. He completed his Masters in Intelligent Transportation Systems at QUT. He was nominated a finalist for ITS AUSTRALIA YOUNG PROFESSIONAL AWARD 2021. He worked as a research officer on the project “Cooperative and Highly Automated Driving Pilot, Queensland” in the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety (CARRS-Q), Queensland. He also worked as a research assistant in the QUT Centre for Data Science and QUT School of Civil & Environmental Engineering.

He is skilled at python coding and MATLAB tools for data analysis using different machine learning approaches. His research field includes Robotics & Automation, Intelligent Transport Systems, Connected & Autonomous Vehicles, and Machine Learning.

His PhD research topic is on multi-robot task allocation using reinforcement learning, where heterogeneous robots will operate in a collaborative manner and team up with human. Here, he will train robots with the CSIRO Data61 robotics team to be prepared for DARPA Subterranean Challenges.

In his Masters study, he worked on “Ipswich Connected vehicle Pilot” project at Queensland in collaboration with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, where he solved road safety problems like predicting vehicles’ red light running violations and turning at intersections using time series machine learning algorithms. He also worked on object detection, image classification, sentiment classification using machine learning during his research officer career.
