Master thesis topics

To have more information on any of the proposals, please contact either Prof. Ville Kyrki or one of the advisors indicated in the proposal of interest.

At present, the following master thesis proposals are available in the group:

Master Thesis on “Sim-to-real active localization for robots”

The aim of this thesis would be to investigate how a learnt A3C model can be transferred from simulation to real-worlds operating in diverse real world environments.

Master Thesis on “Bio-inspired active whisker array”

The thesis goal is to develop a cheap, open source multi-point contact sensor array inspired by rat whiskers.

Master thesis on “Semantic mapping for indoor robotics”

This thesis goal is to develop a probabilistic approach for building and updating semantic maps of the objects in an environment.

Master thesis on “People flow maps for indoor robot navigation”

This thesis goal is to develop a probabilistic approach for building and updating people flow maps able to help the robot being socially-aware while navigating by predicting people movement.
