Academical projects

Septembre 2018January 2019

Control a Robot by means of an adaptive body motion decoder [5.25/6]

Project realized at the laboratory for intelligent systems (LIS) at EPFL. The aim of the project was to implement a adaptive map between the user inputs and the drone attitude using an online machine learning algorithms implemented with python and Scikit learn, and compare the performances between different algorithms as well as an offline version using a custom made simulator in Unity3D.
