Based on the new rule: No use of adhesives for capturing game balls. We now need to design a ball capture mechanism without using adhesives. Some requirement about this capture mechanism: Functionally, it should be able to easily catch and release the ball From design aspect, it should be l...

We are working towards a fully decenatralize lifelong path planner for multi-agent path finding. To that end we have built an Open.ai gym environment which can be found here: https://github.com/pehuenmoure/warehouse_rrl. Our environment environment will be used for training our agents and analyzing...

I've been thinking about the next direction I can put into my DARPA paper. I'm puting some ideas together, the overall framework is that I would like to solve a multi-agent planning problem: Here are some relative concepts that tight into this problem: Multi-agent planning: multiagent plan...

Currently working on the first step of a simulation for Tsang-Kai's SLAM project. A simulation will help verify landmark accuracy among other things beyond what can be demostrated using datasets. Ultimately we would like the simulation to look like the below figure [1] . The simulation setup...

This week, the research question that we are trying to explore is what is the impact of weight distribution on performance. The theoretical analysis is as follows: One of the impact is that weight distribution will change the line of action of the force, and also will change the cross-section-are...

The micro-UAV flight control problem has been addressed by many researchers. Good open-source flight controllers including those based on the popular PX4/Ardupilot platform are also readily available. We decided to try to control our blimp with Mini-Pix, a flight controller born out of the PX4/Ardup...

This week, I finished reformulating the 2D case in the dot product notation and using the lagrangian approach. After converting dot products to the equivalent trigonometric representation, we get the same answer as our previous paper. This is exciting. It means that our approach has potential to wor...
