Hilton Bristow
ITEE Summer Scholar (2009-10)

Hilton was studying as a fourth-year Engineering student, majoring in Mechatronics. His summer project at Thinking Systems involved porting a SLAM navigation algorithm to an omnidirectional drive platform, and helped instil his interest in biologically inspired robotics. His thesis continues in a similar vein, and explores the viability of using the GPU as a coprocessor in computationally demanding aspects of SLAM.
