My work until now

short overview about different projects. Have a look into the blog for more detailed descriptions.

Founder and software developer at roomplan (09.2014 - 08.2015)

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.

Founder and software developer at Advermento (06.2015 - 12.2015)

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.

Diploma thesis - 3D indoor model creation using kinect (01.2014 - 06.2014)

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.

Prefinal thesis: Image Feature Tracking onboard UAVs (01.2013-12.2013)

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.

Working student at Bosch Corporate research (04.2012 - 09.2013)

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.

Working student at Institute for Flight Mechanics and control (04.2011 - 03.2012)

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.

Internship at EADS (Airbus) - Cassidian (10.2010 - 03.2011)

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.

Working student at Institute for technical optics (11.2009 - 09.2010)

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.

Privat work on artificial neural networks

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)

EADS Cassidian - Abteilungsleiter MEA54

"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.""

Dr. Tobias Haist
Dr. Tobias Haist
Institut for technical Optics / University of Stuttgart

"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."

Work is not everything.

There is a life after it …

Soccer

20 years of soccer carrer. Always fun and always defender. My clubs where: Spvgg Besigheim, FV Löchgau and SV Vaihingen. I played in Landesliga and in the regional youth election.

Selfe defence

For more than two years I practise Krav Maga at the Krav Maga Union in Stuttgart and around. It's perfect to relax after too much time at the computer.

Find out what Krav Maga is ...

My music

in the evening I like to listen to music like ``la belle mixtape``, ``the sound you need`` and artists like Kygo and Robin Schulz.

listen to it ...

Riding my KTM Duke 690

There is nothing better than a short ride through the black forest with my little baby.

Riding bike

At least once a year I go to the alps for riding my bike. My favourite spot is Leogang in Austria.
