Dipl.-Ing. (aer) Max Schneider
3D Data processing
„One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men.
No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.“
Your position fits perfectly to my expectations if it can be described as following....
I am a very friendly and kind person. So I will perfectly fit into a friendly team.
I am fascinated by new technology and especially by ComputerVision, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining.
I actively work on computervision, 3D Data processing and artificial intelligence for 5 years now. I read everything related to robotics and data mining.
OpenCV and PCL
Project Tango & Kinect
Linux, Android and Nvidia Cuda programming
short overview about different projects. Have a look into the blog for more detailed descriptions.
In september 2014 I started founding the company roomplan (www.roomplan.de). roomplans goal was to revolutionize the way how architects measure rooms and create CAD models. The roomplan technology was based on my diploma thesis. We used the Kinect sensor and the Google Project Tango 3D tablet for data acquisition.read more
In July 2015 I started founding the company Advermento (www.Advermento.de). Advermento has developed robots which can write letters, postcards and more with a real fountain pen ``by hand``. The robot handwriting can not be distinguished from human handwriting. Personally I developped the software and defined the business strategy.read more (coming soon)
In my thesis at the Institute for Photogrammetrics I developed a system to record 3D pointclouds and meshes of big indoor areas with the kinect sensor by improving PCL functions like KinfuLargeScale.read more
At the Institute for flightmechanics and control, I developed a system for uav onboard visual feature tracking. The system enabled a small uav to use visual navigation after loosing the GPS signal.Read more.
For 18 month I worked at Bosch in Corporate Research. One task was to speed up feature calculation for image classification. The classification was done by random forests and I extracted image features using NVidia Cuda to get massive speedups in calculation. Additionaly I was doing research how the classification could be optimized.
For one year I was programming new features for an existing uav ground control station. My main tasks where to integrate offline maps into the software, enable live communication using an Xbee and improve the user experience.
In this 6 month internship I worked on training artificial neural networks for automatic object detection. My tasks did also include to add improvements to the existing training process and select new image features that were presented to the networks.
I worked two times at this institute. First time my tasks where to speed up existing image processing algorithms using cuda and the next time I helped developping a high performance raytracing simulater also using Nvidia Cuda.
In my freetime i liked to test existing algorithms for artificial intelligence. I experimented and succeeded with OCR using self developped perceptrons, convolutional neural networks and neural networks inspired by the work of Jeff Hawkins (Numenta)
With my work at roomplan, my studies, different internships, in my time as a working student and while working on personal projects, I collected following experience
years 3D Data Processing
years machine learning
years Computer Vision
year Project Tango
short excerpts from testimonials and letters of recommendation.
"6 month internship in automatic object detection and recognition. This is an excerpt of my letter of recommondation for the "EADS Juniors Programme: "Max Schneider had a good knowledge about artificial neural networks and programming in C++. Therefore he could work independently on his tasks and fullfilled them to our highest satisfaction.""
"12 month HiWi job for Nvidia-Cuda programming: Max Schneider showed a lot of initiative, ambition and worked always independently and higly motivated. We got him to know as a student who was capable to adopt to very complex tasks in short time. He fullfilled all his tasks to our best satisfaction. His relation to colleagues and supervisors was always excellent."
"18 month working student in automatic image classification using NVidia Cuda and Random forests: Max Schneiders achievements were freqiently above expectations in the following areas: Efficiency, Quality, Commitment, Cooperation."
