Master Thesis - Algorithm for Landing and Uprighting the MMX Rover with Gyroscopes
Abstract The Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission is planned by the Japanese space agency JAXA and will travel to Mars and its moons Phobos and Deimos. The main objective of the spacecraft is to collect a sample from Phobos. As a part of this Mission a small rover will be used to de-risk the main probe by letting it explore Phobos prior to touch down. This rover is developed by CNES and the DLR and will be released from the spacecraft approximately 50m above ground where it will then fall onto Phobos.
Bachelor Thesis - Rover Simulation in the Unreal Engine 4
Abstract Subject of this bachelor thesis is the development of a framework for simulating robots and rovers in the Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). The simulation will connect to the robotic framework Robot Operating System (ROS) and provides photo-realistic images for computer vision applications. The well established hardware abstraction layer inter- face called ros control was used to support actuator control in the simulation. To extract sensory information from the photo-realistic virtual environment the rosbridge package was used.
Matura Thesis - HexWing Drone
For the final project in high school we had to conceptualize and build an embedded system. The heart of project should be a micro-controller and all the printed circuit boards (PCBs) should be custom made. All the libraries for the build in peripherals of the embedded micro-controller should also been written from scratch. Goal Each student had the task to find a project in the scope of one school year. In my case I decided to make a hexacopter running on a STM32 micro-controller.
