This week progress continues mainly on two fronts: calculation of FOM for both the FollowerStopper and PI with saturation, and implementation of a deep learning model for computation of the characteristic velocity. For the FOM, we are doing more simulations of the FollowerStopper when the command ve...

In the paper of multirobot cooperative localization analysis [1], they discussed two cases: observable and unobservable. The former leads to a stable estimation, while the later does not. In the paper, they uses extensive calculation to delineate their result. However, such outcome can be easily exp...

This past week, while trying to make composite components using the RoCo interface, I discovered some issues. Before the Summer, Jack had started to work on integrating RoCo with Android devices. This works through an Android App that communicates with the Arduino using Serial. To achieve this, he h...

My main progress this week was getting hierarchical composition to finally work again. There were issues in the old robot compiler backend that seemed to have sorted themselves out when we rewrote it. The main issue I had to deal with to get hierarchical composition working again was fixing yaml ser...

First attempts to add cutouts to the interface

This week I continued my work with Wenzhong on adding finger joints as a option for creating output with Roco. We made some progress in figuring out how to create our own custom tabs as a method of adding the finger joints, however our current method...
