Hi, I'm Mike Hamer

A roboticist, programmer, and PhD student, I'm researching in the fields of robot localization and distributed learning at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control, ETH Zurich in Switzerland.

I am an active contributor to the open-source Crazyflie platform, with contributions including a quaternion-based controller for improved flight performance, an extended Kalman filter for state estimation, as well as numerous bug fixes and driver improvements. My research on ultra-wideband radio localization systems has enabled Crazyflies to be flown indoors without the use of expensive motion-capture systems.
