Student Projects

To apply, please send your CV, your Ms and Bs transcripts by email to all the contacts indicated below the project description. Do not apply on SiROP Since Prof. Davide Scaramuzza is affiliated with ETH, there is no organizational overhead for ETH students. Custom projects are occasionally available. If you would like to do a project with us but could not find an advertized project that suits you, please contact Prof. Davide Scaramuzza directly to ask for a tailored project (sdavide at ifi.uzh.ch).

Upon successful completion of a project in our lab, students may also have the opportunity to get an internship at one of our numerous industrial and academic partners worldwide (e.g., NASA/JPL, University of Pennsylvania, UCLA, MIT, Stanford, ...).

  • The goal of the project is to implement a Machine Learning algorithm that can recover the camera motion from a single blurry image.

  • The student is expected to study how motion estimation is affected by feature selection (e.g., number of features, different feature locations). The ultimate goal will be to implement a smart feature selection mechanism in our visual odometry framework.

  • In robotics, the inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a commonly used sensor and provides the motion information of the correct scale. This project aims to implement a deep learning algorithm that can estimate the scene depth from images and the IMU measurements.

  • The project aims to develop a robust and adaptive multi-camera visual odometry pipeline based on the existing framework in our lab.

  • Specific work will include the theoretical analysis of the visual odometry pipeline and validation by simulation/experiments. It is also possible to perform the study for different camera configurations.

  • Event cameras such as the Dynamic Vision Sensor (DVS) are recent sensors with large potential for high-speed and high dynamic range robotic applications. The goal of this project is to extend and improve an existing event camera simulator developed in our lab.

  • In human environments, windows and doors represent thresholds between spaces. This project deals with designing a system to robustly detect windows/doors/thresholds that a quadrotor could fly through, using cameras and range sensors.

  • Camera calibration is a paramount pre-processing stage of many robotic vision applications such as 3D reconstruction, obstacle avoidance and ego-motion estimation. The goal of this project is to develop a user-friendly, single and multi-camera calibration toolbox adapted to our robotic system.

  • Hand-Eye calibration is a paramount pre-processing stage of many robotic and augmented reality applications. The goal of this project is to develop a user-friendly hand-eye calibration toolbox integrated with our robotic system.

  • The goal of this project is to develop a visual-inertial pipeline for mobile robots. The system will estimate the pose of the robot using one or multiple cameras and IMU measurements.

    More …

  • The goal of this project is to explore the possibilities that continuous structure from motion (SfM) has to offer for event cameras.

    More …

  • The goal of this project is to develop visual-inertial pipeline for the Dynamic and Active Vision Sensor (DAVIS). The system will estimate the pose of the DAVIS using the event stream and IMU measurements delivered by the sensor.

    More …

  • The goal of this project is to turn an event camera into a high-speed camera, by designing an algorithm to recover images from the compressed event stream.

    More …

  • The goal of this project is to use event cameras to compute the optical flow in the image plane induced by either a moving camera in a scene or by moving objects with respect to a static event camera.
