1. Here is the intermedium results: plane stress of a CFFF rectangle plate, with uniaxial load The magnitude is the same, results are close (at least visually). Stress u direction displacement v direction displacement (results do not match well, but this is not the direction of interes...

We tested two FPV cameras on a flying blimp. The Search camera looks aweseome:

Last month Tsang-Kai emailed me his proof for the solution for KL Average for von Mises-Fisher distributions. Now we are looking for ways in which we can apply this to different real engineering problems that exist. One interesting application of von Mises-Fisher distributions is in Quantum Infor...

Bryan Bednarski - April 8, 2021 This repo serves as a jumping-off point for system integration of semantic instance segmentation and multi-object tracking in real-time applications. The initial goal of this work was the explore possible optimizations in semantic segmentation through tried-and-true...

In our previous paper, we investigate the consensus problem with von Mises distribution. We want to extend our analysis to more general distributions, in particular the von Mises-Fisher (vMF) distribution over hyperspheres. In fact, vMF distributions are used in some machine learning algorithms. I...

There are three steps I will take in order to implement this design tool: Step 1: Verify I operate correctly in FEA (Solidworks Simulation). In order to do this, I will use some existing numerical solution and/or analytical solutions to find out critical buckling load. Then I will apply this criti...

Vertical control on the newly design balloon: We will start testing horizontal control shortly.

Old custom balloon: Newly design balloon: Compared with previous balloon, the newly design balloon has better shape for our capture mechanism. And the leakage situation is also better after we imporve and iterate our manufacturing process.

After testing our previous active caputure mechanism, we found that one is pretty unstable, so this week, we tried another passive capture mechanism. And it worked nice. During the test, we did find some bugs that we need to fix. We'll try to fix that this week.
