M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Remote Research Assistant Intern, Presagis Canada Inc.

Strong knowledge about C, C++ and objective oriented analysis and design.

Good Experience in dealing with 3D LiDAR point cloud, Mobile Robots, Sensor fusion.

Worked in many projects using C and C++, on embedded systems and PCs, utilizing LIDARs, robotic arms, IMUs, servos.

Embedded systems experience (GPIOs, ADC, DAC, PWM, Timers, Interrupts, communication protocols as “UART, I2C, SPI”)

Manufactured two line-tracking robots, two Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle (ROV) and Sign Language Translator.

Hardware and software robotics and embedded experience as a member, leader and coach of several robotics teams

Leadership and teamwork experience as head of coaches at INTEL BA Science Fair, member of IEEE technical team.

Presentation skills and Public speaking as a speaker in TEDx and many other technical and non-technical talks. RELEVANT WORKING EXPERIENCE:

Remote Research Assistant Intern, Presagis Canada Inc. Sep. 2017 – Till now Project: Degraded Visual Navigation system using LIDAR:

My role in this project is designing an algorithm that can detect safe landing zones for the helicopter landing in no clear visual conditions, using the LIDAR points cloud data, received from a LIDAR mounted on the helicopter.

The algorithm was implemented in C++ using multithreading to be able to work in real time and was tested successfully. It can calculate the slope of the terrain, roughness, perimeter and area of the given SLZ to help the pilot to take the decision of landing. A video featuring the project is available here:

Research Assistant, Queen’s University Sep. 2017 – Till now Project: Integrated LIDAR-INS Solution for Car Navigation:

This work aims to develop an accurate and reliable navigation system solution for dense urban areas through integrating GNSS such as Global Position System (GPS) with LIDAR and Inertial Navigation system (INS).

I designed an algorithm, which is able to use only LIDAR and INS to determine the path of a robot indoor.

Visiting Researcher, Queen’s University, Canada June 2015 – Aug 2015 Project: Intelligent Indoor Positing System:

This work proposes an integrated indoor positioning system, employing Pedestrian Dead reckoning module

(PDR) and ZigBee wireless module in order to correct the errors done by using the PDR module only.

The project was successfully implemented in an Android app available on LANGUAGES SKILLS: TECHNICAL SKILLS:
