Maxime Vaidis is currently a Ph.D student in Norlab laboratory. He got a formation in mathematics and physics of two years in the preparatory classes for the Grandes Ecoles at Faidherbe (Lille, France) as well as two Master’s degrees, one in electrical Engineering from UQAC (University of Quebec At Chicoutimi, Canada), and an other one in Telecommunication and computer Engineering from Telecom Saint Etienne (University of Jean Monnet-Saint-Etienne, France). He did an internship at UQAC in LAIMI laboratory (Automatic and 3D Multimodal Intelligent Interaction Laboratory), during which he participated in the develoment of a smart insole and a creation of a new type of robot’s swarm and his interaction which a human operator. He also worked for ConformiT compagny through a research contrat to develop a new accident-prevention system working with some Deep learning. His current works are about to develop a robot which can map some caves with Lidar sensors.
