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.

Low capital algorithmic trading

With small amounts of money, trading things on the stock market is very profitable and has very few restrictions. In fact, quant funds do this regularly, executing hundreds of trades every day holding onto investments for as low as minutes at a time. In this project, you would explore different methods of financial modeling ranging from fundamentals analysis to strictly technical cost-based analysis of securities and aim to implement an algorithm that could automate trading.

Wall-following drone

Drones are becoming extremely inexpensive and decreasing in size dramatically, making it feasible for flight indoors to become somewhat safe. In this project, we would analyze the physics that make a drone move and augment a run of the mill drone to be able to sense its surroundings and be able to follow a wall.

Haptic Feedback Design for a Robotic System

A major component of integrating robotic systems with human controllers is giving humans the proper feedback so that they can feel what is happening with the system. In this project, we would discuss the development of a robotic system with the proper sensing technology to be able to feed that back to a user. This project has numerous possibilities of exploration, including researching the frequency and speeds at which different parts of your body are able to process feedback and the resolution for different types feedback your body has.
