Joint master thesis with SenseFly (Lausanne)

Dienstag, 8. April 2014 7:40

As part of our SINUS research project (http://uav.aau.at), NES is offering a joint master thesis with SenseFly (http://www.sensfly.com) – a leading drone company located in Lausanne, Switzerland. Interested students are requested to contact Prof. Bernhard Rinner.

Project Description

senseFly Ltd, a spinoff of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, develops and commercialises mini-drones for civilian applications in the domain of 2D and 3D mapping. The maps generated with these drones are used for such applications as construction, mining logistics, forestry, conservation, crop monitoring or humanitarian aid. As part of its extensive research and development program, senseFly is looking for motivated engineers and programmers to develop, design, test and even release to market new hardware and software modules for our mini-drones. As an intern or master’s student, you will be integrated directly with our dynamic team of engineers and researchers working on new products on the cutting edge of aerial robotics. Projects have a duration of 6 months and can be tailored based on the competencies of the applicant.

The proposed thesis project involves the development of smart flight planning algorithms for swarms of fixed-wing eBee drones (https://www.sensefly.com/drones/ebee.html). Current planning algorithms split an area of interest into one or several flight plans based on an estimate of the time required to complete the flight. The goal of this project is to expand this algorithm to include dynamic re-planning during flight based on several factors, including remaining battery level, area covered, wind estimation, the number of drones in the air, etc. Algorithms will first be prototyped using a simulator and then tested in the air using several drones. If successful, the algorithms will be integrated into a future release of our flight planning software.

Interested students should have knowledge in programming (C++, experience with Qt a plus), mathematical modelling and communication protocols. Experience with drones is a plus. Please send your application including a current CV and your student records (Studienerfolgsnachweis) to bernhard.rinner@aau.at.

Open Master Theses @ Smart Grid Group

Mittwoch, 26. März 2014 10:20

The Smart Grid Group of the NES-Institute is offering two new topics for Master Theses:

Occupancy Detection in Household Power Draw

Master Thesis or Research Project (Informatics, Mathematics, Information Technology):

Smart metering and accordingly, fine-grained energy demand data introduces the possibility to extract useful information from the monitored data such as appliance level demand feedback. One possible and important scope of energy consumption data is to detect the occupancy of household residents, which is fundamental to enable a various number of different smart home and home automation applications. Therefore, the task of this Master Thesis is it to identify state of the art algorithms for occupancy detection, to implement the most important and promising algorithms, to compare them and finally, to test them in a real world environment.

Knowledge: Working in a scientific way, programming language according to personal preference (Matlab, Python, C++)
Contact & Advisor: Dominik Egarter (dominik.egarter@aau.at)

Energy-Efficient LED Light Control for Smart Buildings

Master Thesis (Informatics, Mathematics, Information Technology):

The reduction of energy demand is an actual and important challenge. A big portion of today’s energy demand underlies the energy demand of household lighting systems. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to identify an energy-efficient lighting system based on LED technology, to create and to implement a test system and to evaluate its performance compared to a todays conventional lighting system.

Knowledge: Circuit design, embedded programming (microcontroller, Raspberry Pi)
Contact & Advisor: Dominik Egarter (dominik.egarter@aau.at)

Open scholarships for Master thesis

Mittwoch, 18. Dezember 2013 20:25

drone

New scholarship opportunities for Master thesis in an interdisciplinary project on the use of UAV networks for delivery of goods.

Delivering goods via a network of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) becomes an option if classical means of transportation like trucks, trains, and planes fail. On the one hand, this comes about if roads, railway tracks, or landing facilities do not exist, if natural disasters make it impossible to use them, or if classical means of transportation are too dangerous in crisis areas. A compelling task for a ‘delivery-by-UAV service’ is, for example, the provision of medical products tailored to the instantaneous needs of patients in Africa’s remote areas, and the comprehensive supply of nutrition and (purified) water in case of emergency. On the other hand, the establishment of an air-borne supply service in densely populated metropolitan areas is also worthwhile, since congestion often makes roads nearly impassable.

 

Master thesis 1: „How much should be charged for delivering commercial goods by a network of UAVs?”
(Informatics / Business Administration / Mathematics / Information Technology)

We are looking for an individual eager to rise to the challenge of analyzing how such a delivery-by-drone service should be priced, and in which way the pricing strategy should respond to the current level of consumer satisfaction. Since all results should be obtained by utilizing an agent-based system, some understanding of object-oriented programming would be appreciated (e.g., Python); some knowledge of the principles of economics would be more than welcome.

A scholarship of 300 € per month will be available to the successful applicant.

 

Master thesis 2: „Performance evaluation of a network of UAVs delivering commercial goods”
(Informatics / Business Administration / Mathematics / Information Technology)

One critical issue in networks of UAVs is the coordination of the flying robots. The aim of this work is to evaluate the impact of on-line coordination algorithms on system performance. The evaluation will be performed by using agent-based simulations. To this end, some understanding of object-oriented programming would be appreciated (e.g., Python).

A scholarship of 300 € per month will be available to the successful applicant.
