|Organisatsiooni nimi||Software Engineering and Information Systems|
Establishing of a state of the art of fluid flow sensing in robotics, and investigating its applications in autonomous driving using computational-fluid-dynamics simulations.
Perception, flow sensing, autonomous robotics, computational fluid dynamics
Skills required and developed:
fluid-flow sensing, computational-fluid-dynamics simulation, data processing
Sensing of fluid flow has gotten increased attention of underwater robotics community in the last decade. The field fluid flow has also been of interest in aerial robotics. It has however not been investigated much in the field of autonomous ground robotics to that extent.
The project aims to:
1.\tEstablish a state of the art for fluid flow sensing in robotics (aerial, underwater as well as ground robotics).
2.\tInvestigate potential uses of air-flow sensing in autonomous driving.
3.\tValidate potential applications of air-flow sensing in autonomous driving using computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) simulations.
