One very easy way to get involved in OpenLidar without spending money is to get students working on topics that are interesting for the community, and to publish the results on the OpenLidar platform. Potential topics could be:
- Analysing the robustness of lidar modules
- Improving TI measurements through improvement of analysis of the raw spectra
- Optimizing multi-lidar strategies in GIS
The topics could be either purely academic or also industry-led. Our idea is that you can share the topic, get in contact with the community and exchange topics and information about available students. We will link to theses through the website. In Stuttgart we will be starting a Masters thesis to analyse the reliability of our scanning lidar, and how it could be improved – see also next section!
If you have ideas for a thesis, already have (or need) a student or intern, please get in touch and we would be happy to help get the news out. You could also comment below.
