The Cyber Physical Systems group is pursuing a wide range of research directions related to safe decision making, motion planning and control for autonomous vehicles, involving both formal methods, sampling- and optimization-based methods as well as deep learning-based methods.
Currently, the following thesis proposals are open:
At the KI-ASIC project we are researching about the application of bio-inspired neural networks to real-world applications.
If you are interested in learning about neuroscience and how neuromorphic engineering is trying to narrow the gap between biology an technology, do not hesitate to contact us.
- Study and implementation of time-based spiking neuron models
- Implementation of a real-time SNN in Intel’s Loihi
- Design of an electronic circuit for converting sensor data into spikes
Currently open positions:
Additionally, we will have open topics in safe reinforcement learning for manipulators and mobile platforms in the future.
If you are interested in these topics, you can contact: jakob (dot) thumm (at) tum.de
For interest in a BA/MA thesis in machine learning for modular robotics, please contact Jonathan Kuelz.
We also offer industrial thesis with the startup RobCo. For the current thesis offered with RobCo please have a look at their website. For general interest in a Bachelors or Masters Thesis with RobCo, please follow this link.
