CSO Capture System

Supervisor: Bastien Gorret (bastien.gorret@epfl.ch)

Type of the project: Semester project, 2-3 student

Recommended: ME, EE, Robotics

The goal of this project is the design, fabrication and test of the next version of the CSO capture system. An actual prototype was built during the last semester and further design is required. Thus the project shall redesign and optimize the prototype by continuing the mechanical design, fabrication and tests on the parts not addressed yet.

Tasks:

  1. Review of the actual prototype and identify the current issue
  2. Address the problems with innovative solutions
  3. Manufacture and test these solutions.
