Student Projects

Are you looking for an interesting and meaningfull idea for your semester or master thesis?
Do you study at ETH Zürich or a nearby university?

We are always seeking new, motivated talents.
Then take a look at the following topics/ideas:

  • Dynamic Transitions onto different Stairs and Surfaces (Control, embedded programming, user interface, state-machine)occupied
  • Autopilot Assistance (Detect narrow passages, computer vision, input guide, assisted control)
  • New Drive train for Track System (hardware implementation, sensor implementation, motorization and control) occupied
  • Position Control Algorithm for intuitive Steering (position controller, speed controller, user-feedback, parametrisation)
    – occupied
  • Software Unit test for powered Wheelchair (C++, Visual Studio, real-time)
  • Hardware Unit Test of Wheelchair (LabVIEW, test procedure, report generation, autonomous testing and repetition, data analysis)
  • New Seat Concept (Adjustability, transformation, electric footrest, backrest, armrest, ergonomics)
  • Android / iOS App Interface (Localization, camera, scoring system)
  • Android / iOS App Remote control (Park in car, visual feedback)
  • Stair Edge Detection Algorithm (Recognize fist and last step, position estimation and localization)occupied
  • Human-Machine Interface (Input device development, software implementation, user-studies)  –  occupied

Interested? Let us know: Get in touch.

Do you have another idea or are you not sure if this is the right thing for you?
