Curriculum Vitae

Manu Manuel has started his Ph.D. work in the topic "Approximate computing for professional image processing" in February 2019 at the Chair of Integrated Systems, Technical University of Munich. He received his Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Embedded Systems from the Chemnitz University of Technology in 2018. Manu has been involved in different projects at Hilti Deutschland AG, Kaufering and Robert Bosch GmbH, Hildesheim for eight months each as internships and thesis, and he completed his master thesis on the topic "Invalid Status Identification of Traffic Signs". Moreover, his master research project was the development of a novel computer vision algorithm for breath rate detection using the RGB data. In 2012, he completed his bachelor of technology (B. Tech) in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Mahatma Gandhi University (Amal Jyothi College of Engineering), India.
