Nicolas Van der Noot
Ph.D. Electromechanical Engineer
Senior (R&D) Software Engineer
In January 2018, I started a position as R&D Software Engineer at Sony Depthsensing Solutions. Since 2019, I am now Senior Software Engineer. Being part of the R&D team, I design and develop next generation vision algorithms/applications for the company.
In 2017, I obtained a Ph.D. degree, after conducting a joint Ph.D. thesis in two universities: Université catholique de Louvain (UCL, Belgium) and Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland).
The purpose of my Ph.D. thesis was to develop controllers for humanoid robots to achieve human-like locomotion. More precisely, I designed bio-inspired controllers capable of generating fast, human-like and energetically efficient gaits.
