Shubham Shah


My name is Shubham Shah, and I completed my B-Tech in Mechatronics in 2020. I have since gained experience in computer vision, robotics, and motion planning, and I am currently working as a robotics engineer at Newspace Research and Technologies. My focus is on designing and implementing motion planning systems for swarms of UAVs that can operate effectively in complex GPS-denied environments for emergency response and disaster management. As a researcher, I am passionate about exploring learning and non-learning based methods of motion planning, robotics, and computer vision, and I am committed to driving progress in this field by leveraging my expertise to develop cutting-edge solutions that can make a real difference.


Proficient in Computer Vision, Robotics, and Motion Planning techniques with close to 4 years of industry experience. for more details, please download my detailed resume here.
