I’m Geraldine, an Electronic Engineering student and a new member here. It is a pleasure to be part of this community where I can hear from other fellow enthusiasts as well as share my experiences with robotics projects.
I have worked in different electronics projects such as a weather station that collected environmental information and displayed it in a graphical interface designed in Processing. I’ve also worked on the design of an autonomous mobile robot that detected balls and moved them to a goal depending on their color.
I have experience in computer vision specifically in digital image processing using OpenCV and CUDA. I’m currently working on the automation of the preprocessing stage that underwater images require for applications such as seafloor mosaics and SLAM . I’m also working in the industrial area with the development of a system that automatically detects defects in fabric.
Robots and technology, in general, are topics that have always caught my attention and seeing so many other sharing the same interests is really exciting. I’m a robotics enthusiast who loves pursuing new challenges and from experience I know that is not always an easy task so when possible I try to help those who need some assistance with their own projects.
For sure! The project is focused on restoring/enhancing underwater images which often suffer from low contrast and color distortion so the information from these cannot be fully extracted for further processing such as feature extraction and classification
As you can see, I’ve only been here for a little while, but I can say it is an awesome place to find some guidance in robot projects, share your knowledge or just spend some time looking at the cool robots from other people haha.
I see @igor_X already gave you a brief introduction to the community, you should definitely check those sections out, as well as the Blogs and News to keep up with all the new tech.
