+ Emir Khaled Belhaddad
I’m a Computer Science student at Polytechnique Montréal.
I’m curious about pretty much everything that touchs computer science. Lately, I was mainly oriented toward web-applications development, but I also like to learn about new things related to hardware technologies. I’m generally a hard-worker, but I like to take time to chat with people form time to time.
+ Current Projects
- I’m currently working with Anthony Dentinger, a Computer Science B.Eng. student, on BittyBuzz, which is an implementation of the Buzz programming language for microcontrollers. This will allow researchers to perform swarm robotics experiments on large swarms of cheap robots without the need to re-implement swarm-related features. Possible long-term applications include nanorobotics. MISTLab wishes BittyBuzz, if possible, to fit on the ATMega328P microcontroller of a kilobot. The main constraints of this project are the the program space (32KB, including bootloading program) and the RAM size (2KB).
- I’m the team leader of the group in charge of developping the communication protocols for an arm’s exoskeleton project in Métis (website, Facebook).
- For the BittyBuzz project, I was chosen as recipient of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)’s Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA).
