| JAN - SEP 2019 || International Micro Air Vehicles Competition – Madrid |
Objective: Indoor course: Develop an autonomous micro drone that, under the context of an 4.0 industry, is capable of performing several tasks such as: Autonomously navigate between and through shelves, register the inventory of products, pickup a box and deploy it at a specific spot. Outdoor course: Develop a drone capable of autonomously deliver packages of different sizes, detect rooftops, create two dimensions reconstructed maps. Contribution: - Indoor team Captain - Developed the navigation system for the indoor drone using Monocular ORB SLAM combined with odometry data. - Developed the computer vision and AI solutions for onboard and offboard control.

| FEB - MAR 2018 || Robotic Hand |
Objective: Develop a 3D printed robotic hand capable of mimic the amount of fingers of a captured image, displayed in front of it. Contribution: - Developed the mechanical design. - Coordinated the elaboration of the software Results: - The algorithm used (Convolutional Neural Network) correctly classified the number of fingers in 95% of the test dataset. - Correctly copied the number of fingers presented in front of camera in a time less than 200ms.
| AUG 2018 - MAR 2020 || Internet of Turtles - Distributed traking System |
The project is being developed in a partnership with project Tamar. Objective: Apply concepts of distributed networks and swarm intelligence in low-cost embedded systems for sea turtle life monitoring and organic sensing. Contribution: - Responsable for creating the concept of the solution - Implemneted 2 simulators to validate the concept - Developed of embedded eletronic, sofware system and web tracking interface Results: - The system was validated in simulation. - The communication system was validated in real experiments - The system was deployed in real turtle in a controlled environment
| DEC 2019 - JAN 2020 || Bacterial cultures classifier and separator machine |
In partnership with Fleury Laboratory Objective: Build a semi-industrial machine that automatizes the process of separating and classifying petri dishes with bacterial cultures, according to the bacterial growing state. Contribution: - Petri dishes barcode reader - Classification algorithm (data enhancement + preprocessing + CNN) Results: The classification algorithm was able to perform well even under limited available training data (dataset with 79 images and 4 classes). The maximum accuracy was of 97.7% on the trainset and 94.7% on testset.
| MAY - JUN 2017 || Sprinter Line Follower |
Objective: Design and build an Arduino based line-following cart capable of, when an obstacle in the way is detected, make a sudden and precise braking and stop less than 5 cm from the object. Contribution: - Led a team of six in project execution - Subdivided the team in three development areas: mechanics, control and sensing. - Led the process of capturing the team's technical knowledge. - Integrated results produced by the areas Results: - Met all requirements - The project held the 1st place in the competition (out of 11 teams)
| DEC 2019 || Projects and Prototypes Latin American Competition (CLAPP) |
Objective: Design and Build a Radio Controlled Robot for cucumbers and lettuces picking in Vertical Farms using “raw materials“ and “basic manufacture techniques”. Team of 3 interdisciplinary students from Brazil, Argentina and Peru Results: First Place at the competition
