TUM Robot Competition 2013:

Lead Engineer: microprocessor programming, circuit design, mechanical engineering

Ball Throwing Robot Project

The finished prototype and the initial 3D model of the robot

The duration of this development project was two semesters during my undergrad at the Technical University Munich. The task was to develop and build a concept for a robot, which should be able to throw different kind of balls to a variable distance. The user would be able to select either a Tennis- or Squashball and set a variable distance between two and five meters and the robot should independently throw the ball into a target basket at the given distance.
The project team consisted of six members and we developed a concept leveraging the kinetic energy of two heavy rubber tires, which would first be accelerated to the needed speed and then adjusted to the right angle to achieve the throwing distance. During the project I was the lead engineer and responsible for the success of the project from a technical side. I was involved in the design of the electrical cuircits, programming of the embedded microprocessors and production of the mechanical parts.

Some of my research projects:

During my time as a resarcher at the Biorobotics Lab of the Harvard University in Massachusetts, I use machine learning to develop an segmentation and classification of heart diseases based on ultrasonic images.
