    list available on http://www.kerhuel.eu/wiki/Lubin_Kerhuel
Detailed Description
  • Design of a complete Visuo-Inertial reflex that locks the robot's gaze toward a visual target making the robot capable to accuratly follows the moving target despite strong perturbations (wind, slap) applied on its body
  • Embedded software completly realised thanks to rapid prototyping tools coupled with the blocksed I realised. This blockset allows programming Microhcip microcontroleur from a simulink model with a one click button procedure
  • Training course (2008) : Creation of small buisness
