UAV (Uninhabited Air Vehicle ) for Agricultural Use
The goal of this
project is to develop an airplane and a portable infrastructure for automated spread of fluid,
solid or gas substances on predefined areas, which must be achieved with minimal human intervention. This
project is developed in cooperation with
"Paireli Engineering Solutions" and constitutes my master diploma thesis.
Research on Improving Mecanum Wheel Performance, Design of an Omni-directional Vehicle
A research project at Faculty of
Mechanical Engineering from Technical University of Iasi (Grant CNCSIS
ID-622,Nr. 84/01.10.2007, duration of 3 years) aimed to investigate the
possibilities of improving performance of an omni-directional
Several of my projects finalized in recent years
2008 Unsupervised Image Segmentation Using Hardware Implemented in FPGA Neural Networks (My bachelor graduation diploma project)
Under this project a one-layer Self-Organizing
Feature Map (SOFM) was designed and implemented and used for image segmentation. In addition a
possible design of a similar second layer SOFM and decision making Adaptive Critic algorithm was
proposed. The above techniques are intended to be used for robots' navigation in hostile
2008 Advanced DriverA remotely guided mechanical car-like platform was designed and build by our team from Robotic Club for Continental Open Doors Contest. Its electronic hardware incorporates advanced features such as traction and braking control, and steering assistance.

For the first edition of Open
Doors’ competition organized by Siemens VDO (now part of Continental Corp.) our team developed a remote-controlled omni-directional
vehicle equipped with Mecanum
wheels. This platform can accelerate in any direction without turning the wheels (see
related videos). In addition, a sonar based obstacle avoidance system was designed specifically
for this platform.
2007 Acces Control System Using RF-ID
A commercial project with the aim to develop a custom access control infrastructure for monitoring employees attendance and
restriction of visitors access. Done in cooperation with
"Paireli Engineering Solutions"
2006 Automated Stabilization System for F1E Sailplane
A hardware controller designed to substitute currently used
mechanical guidance and determalization systems for models of the class F1E. It uses magneto-resistive
sensors and accelerometers for direction and tilt measurements respectively. Governing algorithms are programed
into onboard PIC microcontroller.
