Worked on the computer vision part of the autonomous drone race participation of the TU Delft.
Instead of us teaching a robot, we created a robot that teaches humans! With a Kinect we are able to see how well a user interacting with the robot performs the karate movements he has to learn. The Nao robot gives feedback on movements the user has problems with.
Personally I always felt that something “real” was missing when I saw people control a computer program using a Brain Computer Interface (BCI). Together with two friends we created an interface with our brain to control a small Sphero robot. The user can select the direction the ball has to roll in and its speed. By doing so he has to reach…
During my time at the TU Delft I worked a lot with a small stereo camera board. This board was so light (only 3 grams) that it was possible to attach it to a “Delfly”. By programming the stereo cameras in a smart way it was possible to autonomously navigate through our hallway: hands off!
