Tien-Thanh is a robotic researcher at the Robotics & Autonomous Systems unit of the department of Mechanics of the Belgian Royal Military Academy. His research focuses on robotic system integration, 3D reconstruction, real-time perception, planning and control in dynamic, uncertain and occluded environments.
 
 
Hereafter, Tien-Thanh worked as a researcher at MEBIOS – Mechatronics,  Biostatistics & Sensors division in Biosystems department   of the University of Leuven (KU Leuven – Belgium) in the framework of the EU FP7 project CROPS: Intelligent sensing and manipulation for sustainable production and harvesting of high value crops. He was responsible for Work Package 6: Designing and integrating robots harvesting apples and grapes.
 
After spending several years in the Automotive industry as a development engineer, Tien-Thanh joined the Belgian Royal Military Academy, participating in the MarLand research project that aims to develop automated take-off and landing methodologies for unmanned aerial vehicles from Belgian Navy vessels.
