In this quarter, we finished this project aiming to provide a localization algorithm for multi robot system.First of all, we proposed a new algorithm that separates communication as an independent mechanism. By doing so, the algorithm is more robust to communication imperfection. In addition, in...

Our research group's flagship project, Robot Compiler, abbreviated RoCo, has come along a long way since our lab has launched. But can it be improved in terms of user experience?RoCo is basically an online tool that allows people without technical skills to create complex robots easily. Because w...

AndruinoAndruino is a project that I started after the idea of a phone controlled paper robot got brought up in my research group. Smartphones are almost ubiquitous in our everyday life meaning that everybody has the means to provide a cheap paper robot with a collection of advanced sensors and a...

On the 27th of April, 2016, LEMUR had the grand opening of its lab and held an open house to showcase its research. The lab saw a number of visitors from curious undergraduates to professors. Us lab members had the opportunity to present our research to our visitors. The RoCo team demonstrated th...

We have been expecting the lab open house for so long. Finally, the lab is finished.There were so many people in that day, and it was a challenge to share the research progress with someone without EE/CS backgroud, like the architects of the lab. It is particularly difficult for me, since my post...

OverviewThe 2017 Engineering Open House is an event targeted towards students admitted to UCLA under the Engineering Departments. The Roco and Traffic teams presented the research each had been working on to all the potential Electrical Engineering students to show the kind of work undergraduates...

Following on from identifying the Peaucellier-Lipkin linkage as a potential solution to the straight line mechanism problem, the system was created using paper. However, issues became immediately apparent and are listed below:• Rigidity: The paper does not have enough rigidity to handle the f...

As per the MEMS actuator roadmap one area of investigation is designing a linkage system in order to act as an interface between the actuator and the paper hinge.The linkage is necessary in particular because of the constraints of the actuator as listed below:The system is linearly actuated....
