Electromagnetic interference mapping ( Anglais)Informatique - 22-04-2019

Electromagnetic interference mapping

Mapping near-field electromagnetic parasitic emissions is useful for the design, debug and pre-compliance testing of electronic devices. Unfortunately, there is no simple way to make EM scans with sufficient level of details/accuracy, speed and reasonable cost. Hence, I developed this solution to make high-resolution and fast 2D maps of RF EMI for PCBs and more.

AI astronomy pictures processing ( Anglais)Informatique - 08-03-2019

AI astronomy pictures processing

Digital image processing can be used to remove noise and signal distortion from pictures. It is particularly useful for astronomy, as the details are faint and often blurry. The objective of this project is to define an artificial neural network (ANN) and train it with machine learning to take several noisy, convoluted astronomy pictures and output a single processed photograph.

EDF motor design ( Anglais)Électronique - 19-02-2019

EDF motor design

Electric ducted fans (EDF) are an efficient way of producing thrust for an aircraft. However, there are a lot of variables that can be fine tuned to optimize their performance: body curves, fan blade pitch, duct length, number of fan blades, etc. Using both simulation and experimental results, the objective of this small project is to enhance the thrust per input Watt of my design.
