Does automation in typing really make you faster?
Analyze a large amount of mobile typing data to answer the question if predictive methods such as autocorrection and word prediction really make you faster in typing.
Solving Assembly Tasks via Deep Learning
The goal of the project is to enable precise positioning of the objects in 6D space using RGB camera as a main source of feedback.
Experimental study on Selective Laser Sintering/Melting of ceramics
The project will focus on understanding and analyzing the influence of different laser, process and material parameters on ceramics selective laser sintering/melting (SLS/SLM).
Simulation for Selective Laser Sintering of ceramics
Additive manufacturing is a fast growing field: it started with processing of plastic materials in the 80s and it was extended to metals in the late 90s. Ceramics is the next challenge for engineers and researchers and this is the reason why a joint project between ETH Zürich, EMPA and PSI started
How Close is Close Enough? Investigating Spatial Mismatch for Haptics in VR
The goal of this project is to simulate tracking errors in VR of different magnitude, build a data set of tracking errors and create a model of perceived error.
Making Physical Objects Look Virtual: Closed-loop Spatial Augmented Reality
In this project, you will investigate a closed-loop system to control the appearance of an object that is augmented with projection mapping. The object is visually altered using a projector while simultaneously observed with a camera.
Estimating Cognitive Load in VR using the Index of Pupillary Activity
The goal of this project is to re-implement the IPA (Duchowski et al., The Index of Pupillary Activity, CHI 2018) and create a flexible framework to perform cognitive load tests in VR.
Automated identification of two-dimensional crystals based on optical contrast difference
The goal of this project is to develop an automated setup that is able to identify flakes of different thicknesses on Si/SiO2 substrates by analyzing the difference in optical contrast between the crystals and the substrate.
Investigation of brain connectivity and cerebrovascular dysfunctions in Alzheimer's disease mouse models
In this project, we aim to analyze tauopathy-driven changes in cerebrovascular function, hemodynamics, brain connectivity and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease tauopathy mouse models by using high-resolution MRI and photoacoustic tomography.
Deep Learning-based Lake Ice Detection using ESA Sentinel-1 SAR Data
Continuous monitoring of climate indicators is important for understanding the dynamics and trends of the climate system. Lake ice has been included in the list of Essential Climate Variables (ECVs). This thesis will investigate the possibility to monitor lake ice using deep learning with SAR data.
Project in mobile health systems
Develop and test personalized and efficient methods, devices and systems that can be used by anyone at the point-of-care to increase our ability to diagnose, monitor, prevent and treat major global health issues.
Towards Microbial Syngas Fermentation in Sweden
We have established a small-scale syngas fermentation laboratory to study acetogens, and initial experiments were performed examining how model acetogenic strains can best tolerate varying amounts of ammonia in terms of growth and product output. This project will build upon this work.
Electrospun, double-layered scaffolds for 3D Skin Tissue Engineered
This project is part of the Zurich Hochschulmedizin Flagship Project “Skintegrity”, with a collaboration between ETHZ and USZ. The student, who ideally has experience in electrospinning and cell culture, will participate in the development of double-layered nanonfibrous scaffolds for 3D skin tissue engineering.
The role of early trauma on bone microarchitecture and innervation
In this project, the direct and epigenetic effects of early trauma on bone microarchitecture and innervation will be analyzed by microCT, qPCR and immunostaining.
Development of a reflection-type near-field optical microscope
In this project a reflection-type near-field optical microscope will be designed, developed and characterized.
