During my masters, I particularly enjoined studying computer vision, robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and consequently I have added to my study plan all those exams pertaining to these fields. For instance, I found very interesting and educational the experience of building an autonomous mobile robot from scratch during the interdisciplinary course “Robotics and Design”.

For this project we used an Arduino Mega board with several sensors to navigate the environment (optical flow sensor, magnetic compass, infrared distance sensors, color sensors) and few actuators (two motors and two servos).
