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.

Self-parking car with Model Predictive Control

Hate parking? Make the car do it! In this project we'll go over the basics of how to model a car trajectory, and more importantly how to control it using the powerful technique of Model Predictive Control (MPC). Then after a bit of algebra, we'll code up a simulation of the autonomous car and demonstrate a car parking itself.

Glow to the Beat: Sound-responsive wearable LED garment

Imagine your clothes changing color to the beat of your favorite jam. With a couple of LEDs, microphones and boards, we can design and create a wearable garment that glows in response to music.
