Pankaj Deoli completed his bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering (with specialization in automotive engineering) from Graphic Era University, Dehradun, India. At the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, he studied Commercial Vehicle Technology (with specialization in Intelligent systems) for his Master's degree. His Master Thesis at the Robotic Research Laboratory was focussed towards rock detection in earth's off-road environments, wherein the capabilities of deep neural networks for this challenging task were studied.

Since January 2022, Pankaj Deoli is a phd-student in the Robotic Research Laboratory exploring the domain of off-road environment perception for autonomous navigation. His research interests lies in imitating human minds for effective scene representation with use-cases in commercial vehicles.
