New Capabilities: Robot Compiler, RoCo is a sophisticated origam robot generator that a user can define how to cut and fold paper, and change design parameters with ease. I have been working on to export roco generated robot designs into physics simulation software, Webots, so that the user can fu...

For SURP 2021’s Week 9, I worked on the pivoting car. It is a car that has a hinge in the middle. On its hinge is a SG90 servo that rotates the half of the car to a certain direction. Below is a photo of the pivoting car. During this week, Jaehoon Song (LEMUR Arnhold) also managed to generate/di...

The experiment I run in our lab this week is basically the altitude control test. The setup is as follows: Part of the data that I got from our system: The altitude info: The rotation in the altitude changes is also captured: Next I'll imporve the code to process the information(ro...

Previously, a P controller was used for simplicity as it removes the requirement of keeping track of time at each time step. However, with the unstable motion of the blimp, a PID controller is needed to further stabilize the system. This is the result: The parameters were tuned based on the trac...

When we use POST method to create data to send it to the server, we do not need to list the models using known_models.py. Previously, we needed to put the name of the component in known_models python script like this: Then, we need to run the thumbnails python script to create the thumbnails...

In the past 2 weeks, I tried to develop and algorithm that can be used if we have a blimp that have a camera facing down. With the camera, we would be able to detect the field of interest and control the robots within the field. In this case, the current algorithm can be used to control any vehicle...
