I'm working on some fronts right now. Especially with prototype and simulation of connected vehicle systems. I worked in my master's degree with computer vision and embedded systems applied to automated vehicles, especially ADAS. I intend to follow my studies in these approaches with machine learning.

A proof of concept affordable disaster scout vehicle made from easy accessible parts

I'm looking to get a sensor map running where the robot will navigate through a room and pinpoint every single object. I'd have more hypersonic sensors on board to record objects 360 degrees. I'd essentially have a sensor map with multiple points plotted on a graph to give myself a 2D visual representation of the room from a ground level.

Silviu-Tudor S. created project ASTRO

Medium 101709fb 2889 4fdf 9482 218b7877d37e


Robots are becoming an increasingly ubiquitous part of our society, providing help with a wide array of tasks such as cleaning our homes, delivering room service or guiding us to our departure gate at the airport. The adoption of robot solutions is becoming a sensible choice, if not a priority, for an increasing number of businesses. ASTRO is a versatile robot designed to improve productivity and safety in the workplace. Its name is an acronym for Assistance, Safety and Telepresence Robot Officemate.

Project Kidney 3D Printed

This is an active endeavor on spreading this independent campaign, which address a very noble public health problem: the lack of organs to kidney transplantation and ultimately by creating a prototype printer able to build a 3d printed living tissue organ.

Although, many researchers are, at this moment, doing all that's humanly possible to achieve this goal, and maybe saving more than 10.000.000 lives that are in risk just now all over the world due to renal chronic failure, is obvious as much people join with new projects, closer we, mankind, are going to get from achieving this object: autologous organs 3d printed and transplanted.

We, as human race, already have the individual tools need to perform the task already. But individual tools are not, by themselves, just sufficient. It is imperative the thinking and open discussion on innovative strategies.

Years ago, some individual researchers have decided, by themselves, to build 3d printers. Safe, cheap and technology available worldwide. Then we now have: reprap, prusa, mendel ( They were individuals that needed to do, but they left the development opened for others to build and Internet Community helped because these goals are useful to everybody.

So, why not build a tissue 3d printer able to build any organ we choose to build, in a solo, eclectic, world wide, open, community?

Our main goal is to build a functional 3d tissue printer prototype kidney. Next step, is transplantation of a 120 cc of weight prototype, capable of maintaining in vivo serum creatinine levels below 1.5 mg/dL and a creatinine clearance greater then 90 ml/min/1,73m2.

Peter M. created project Anti-Snoozer

Medium 2d4327fa 176e 4670 bb56 d89d25337ccf


Anti-Snoozer is a facial detection system for when people are falling asleep at the wheel. You have a camera, ideally on your dashboard, that detects when you’re rapid blinking, when your eyes are closing, when you’re yawning, as well as when you’re looking around too much.

When that’s detected, a sound alarm is activated, as well as the car’s hazard lights (if you have access to that) to warn the other drivers. In order to stop it, you can either look directly at the road, or raise your hand to signal, like in a boxing match, to stop the annoying sounds. There are other features, like text messages, that are sent to your loved ones, but those aren’t immediate feedback that you can have.

It consists of an Intel® RealSense™ camera on the dashboard and an Intel® Edison chip, which gives you all of the alarms. In the center is a computer. For this one, we use a thing called NUC. It’s just a “next unit of computing,” a tiny little computer—a Mac mini is probably the easiest comparison. It runs the operating system that can run the software, and it can be mounted anywhere. Ideally this would be integrated inside the car, and not as a third-party product.

They open sourced the whole technology, so anyone who wants to can play with the technology or build one for themselves. There are two chips inside.

The first chip is the Haswell chip that’s in all of our computers. The 3D camera does require a lot of processing power, because we’re doing facial recognition and we’re doing voice synthesis, but without the Internet. Normally, on something like your phone, voice-to-text and text-to-voice involves sending the file off to be processed and getting something back, but we want to do all that processing on board, so it took a pretty powerful chip.

The second chip is an Edison chip that comes from the Internet of things. If you use the camera as a sensor and you’re sensing “drowsy,” you need to set some alarms in order to attempt to wake the user. The Edison chip is used for that. It can connect via USB and send out alarms—noise, but you could also vibrate the chair or the wheel if it’s integrated in the car itself.

Peter M. created project Vehicle Rear Vision

Vehicle Rear Vision

Why do we build Vehicle Rear Vision? Back-up collision has been a major problems, The U.S. Center for Disease Control reported that from 2001–2003, an estimated 7,475 children (2,492 per year) under the age of 15 were treated for automobile back-over incidents. About 300 fatalities per year result from backup collisions. By 2018 all the cars sold in United States will require a mandatory backup camera.

How do we solve the problem? Most of the cars in the market today still do not have backup camera, that includes about half of the the cars that's being sold in the US today, and much more than half across the globe. We can solve this problem by installing a camera on the back of the car, using the space of license plate.

Walabot will be able to detect the distance of the target closest to the vehicle.

Intel RealSense R200 camera will give us a greater detail on what's being seen, including low light situation.

Intel Joule developer kit is powerful enough to run RealSense cameras along with Walabot. Raspberry Pi isn't powerful enough to run a RealSense 3D camera, in which we can add a lot more features in the future that can improve functionalities of the car. Same version can be used with Pi with a normal USB camera, but it won't be good for night time.

Android phone/tablet being used to display the Backup Camera, this is to reduce the cost of an additional screen. iOS version can be built upon request.

Through of those components, we will be able to build an Rear End Vision that shows user the back of the car.
