Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

1) Deep Learning for Object Recognition:

We will design and train a deep neural network for detecting people and objects in images in python using tensorflow. We will cover state of the art methods in computer vision. This will require a student with strong programming experience.

2) Balancing Robot:

We will build and program a two-wheeled balancing robot, similar to a "Segway". We will build the physical robot, program the software, and discuss the mathematics of the controller. Depending on student interest, we can focus on hardware, software, or theory.

Coding skills

python, C++, Java, git, ROS
