About

Founded at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne in 2015, Wise Robotics is a team of six engineers with a background in robotics and embedded systems.

Wise Robotics provides customers with solutions tailored to their needs. Our engineers can help bring your idea to life, whether it is a complete new product, a modification to an existing project or anything in between.

Skills

Robotics

At WISE Robotics we have a broad spectrum of practical experience consolidated by a strong theoretical background. We have worked on projects including robot localization, navigation and control as well as signal processing, sensor fusion, robot perception and machine learning.

Circuit Design

Our engineers can design the electronic systems needed for your project, from choosing the components to designing the board layout.

Prototype Development

Using our knowledge in mechatronics design and rapid prototyping such as 3D printing, we can swiftly develop and manufacture a functional prototype of your product idea. This allows for fast feedback in order to tailor your product to your market’s needs.

Embedded Systems

From ultra low power applications running on battery to powerful Linux-based solutions, our engineering team can design and program the system needed for your application.

Projects

  • Small Mobile Robot for Engineering Education

    March '16
    -
    Today

    Design and implementation of the electronics, firmware, communication stack and porting of a virtual machine based framework for a small mobile robot. It lays the ground for an education platform that allows the exploration of various concepts.

  • Smart Energy Metering System

    August '15
    -
    Today

    The device uses a set of image processing filters for digit extraction and neural network based classification for meter readout. The result is then transmitted over a low power wireless network to a custom logging server. This has been implemented in a battery powered product with low-power constraints.

  • LIDAR Based Mobile Robot Localization

    September '15
    -
    Today

    Using an industrial LIDAR embedded on a robot in order to extract absolute position. This computed pose obtained is fused with odometry and inertial sensors to achieve better resolution and dynamic performance.

  • Satellite Attitude Determination

    September '15
    -
    January '16

    Spacecraft attitude determination using state-of-the-art Kalman filter based sensor fusion with low-power consumption constraints. Including integration in a real time embedded system of a nanosatellite.

  • Satellite Mechanical Subsystem Design

    September '15
    -
    January '16

    Development of an energy storage module for a nanosatellite. The project included the electronics design of the primary power switch and mechanical design of a thermally insulated battery box. The challenges were the size and weight constraints as well as the resistance to the vibrations of the rocket launch environment.

  • Development of a Basic Motor Intention Decoder Using EEG

    March '15
    -
    June '15

    Identification of basic motor intention based on motor imagery process. The project included data acquisition, pre-processing, feature extraction and classification using machine learning methods.

  • High Performance DC‑Motor Control

    September '14
    -
    June '15

    Development of a miniature motor controller board. The controller is capable of following a trajectory profile for torque, velocity and position setpoints. It is connected to a CAN-bus for control and configuration.

  • Stereo-Vision Based Localization

    September '14
    -
    January '15

    A binocular localization system was built and programmed for a self-stabilized platform. The system relied on vision feedback to extract and track stereo-feature pairs that were fused into a Kalman filter in order to infer position, attitude and velocity of the system.
