But I am so very utterly confused about what aspect of robotics i want to work on.
[rant]A thesis isn't about building a robot. It's about doing science, of which a robot may or may not assist you with.Unfortunately, the robotics field is infested with 'I made a cool robot' papers - written by people who only want to be 'published' for resume purposes. They don't actually answer any important research question, or even say how what they learned with their robot can be applied to any other robot.It's understandable to feel this way, as it's important for our careers. However, it does a huge disservice to science. I often have to waste weeks reading through dozens of junk papers just to find a few golden gems of knowledge [/rant]....Other stuff...
Since your strong suits are programming, you might want to think about thinking up a new localization algorithm or something like that.
