Over the course of the quarter I have been conducting a literature review on localization techniques that can be used for the lidar localization investigation. Progress in this area was slow at first was it was difficult to differentiate between the myriad of localization algorithms given different...

So far, Colo is functional to test and analyze cooperative localization. However, users need to modify the environment to add new algorithmn. I want to make it as a toolbox(python pakage) for users so that they just import it and use it. I have look into several simulation environment. Pymote is a...

Over the past week I have been reformulating the Kalman filter implementation by given it a more formal representation such that the system can be fully understand and built upon.

The image below shows the block diagram of the system from the highest level:

The plant model is assumed to be kno...

The SegBot in the interface

This week, Prathyush and I worked on building the "SegBot" car in the mechanical interface. To do this, we had to fix/add multiple features, and there are still a few things left to do before the design is perfect. The two main obstacles if creating the car were adding...

Finally, the finger joints can be appropriately added into connection between selected subcomponents. The way we achieved this goal is to call specific arguments in make_output() function without adjusting our RoCo system.

c.make_output(tabFace=maleFingerJoint,tabDecoration=maleFingerJointDecorati...
