Updates: RoCo can save components separately, in .stl files Coordinate can be saved in .wbt required format in .txt files Facet normal can be saved in .wbt required format in .txt files Details Coordinate points of each component have been saved. Example: RoCo-Saved-Coord (left)...

The optimization based SLAM formulate the optimization problem with two kinds of constraints. First, the pre-integrated IMU error establishes the constraints between two spatial states, or two poses. The other one is the reprojection error that links a spatial state and a landmark. In the optimizati...

I have been thinking a bit on what consensus on a quantum network means and whether the solution for von Mises-Fisher consensus has any good application towards quantum information theory. There are 4 ways to define Consensus on a quantum network (Mazzarella, et al. 2015): Sigma Expectation Con...

"LOGiCS is a project funded by the DARPA program on Symbiotic Design of Cyber-Physical Systems. The aim of the project is to develop design tools and techniques that augment human designers with an AI co-designer towards achieving significant improvements in design productivity as well as design 'su...

Delta-Tolling in Grid-Based Multiagent Systems For a single agent, the problem of warehouse navigation can be considered a simplistic path finding problem over a gridworld environment. With multiple agents existing and acting in this environment, however, the problem of coordinating actions over a...

Goal: 1. Figure out what type of robot design problem can be solved easily & quickly in Webots, so as to give collaborators something to experiment on. 2. Figure out how to 'connect' RoCo to Webots: (1) What file format is needed? (2) How to import components and assemble them in Webots? (...

Goal 1: Get RoCo-designed robots to work well in Webots Problems: RoCo generated .stl file is for presentation, the parts are considered as one solid body, which means there will be no rotational/translational parts simulated in Webots. How to get RoCo generate files that can differentiate t...

Pehuen and I are working on computational design and evaluation of robots. This project will take realistic manufacturable robotic designs from RoCo and evaluate them in Webots. Flowchart: here is a flow chart that we came up Tasks: the parts that are marked in red are what is missing in thi...

In order to verify the use of camera automation control, I set up a camera on a quadrotor. I will use this as testbed to understand and test some algorithm and data on it. Right now, I can use this camera to proceed Wifi remote control:
