This week on the SCP Actuator team we focused on creating a more suitable setup for the coil insertion process. Last week’s insertion process resulted in uneven coils; therefore, Wenzhong and I suspected that this was due to the fact that the thread was not held in the same plane as the rotation o...

Last week I studied Loco system, which is a posibile solution to estimate the absolute position of crazyflie. The system has two parts: a Loco deck add on crazyflie and 4 Loco anchors at ground. The system as whole works as a mini GPS system and calculate crazyflie's 3D position. For the simulator I...

This week, I used the current RoCo system to create some simple furniture design. Using add_subcomponent, add_connection, constrain_subcomponet_parameter and various different subcomponets shapes in the current RoCo library, I was able to design a table, a stool and a chair. I made the table design...

Results published in the paper "Dissipation of stop-and-go waves via control of autonomous vehicles" show that it is possible in principle to mitigate the propagation of traffic waves on a ringroad using a single autonomous vehicle. The proposed controller for the vehicle, called the Follower-Stop...

This week I made an Excel spreadsheet containing information about the experimental information on the SCP actuators we make in the lab. In the same spreadsheet I made separate sheets with the data on the SCP actuators for different journal articles that also use the 117/17 model silver coated nylon...
