After the disruption of the last two years, it was a pleasure to finally be able to address and hand over a degree certificate to a Master student again. MSc student Gijs Walravens gave his graduation presentation on March 24th, succesfully defending his MSc thesis “Towards Digital Twins for soccer robots: a use case in reusing artifacts”. Gijs did his MSc final project as a graduation intern at TU/e, collaborating with TechUnited, developing a digital shadow (as precursor to a digital twin) of TechUnited’s soccer robots that compete in the RoboCup Middle Size League (MSL). Abstract (and soon full thesis) can be found here. You can watch my speech to Gijs (in Dutch) here.
