Week 1:

  • [x] Create a schedule & goals with time frames.
  • [x] Get the LED to blink.

Week 2:

  • [x] Establish project idea by Thursday.
  • [x] Start & Finish Pre-lab. (<1 day - Pooja sent us hers)
  • [x] Investigate how to make the super coiled polymer actuators (SCP)
  • [ ] Reading a LOT of artic...

  • We were able to make the LED to blink using esp8266 / Arduino
  • We are currently learning Python through Code Academy
  • We wrote our project proposals, but they are still in their early stages (living document)
  • We read over and are reviewing Pooja’s Pre-lab on the fabrication process of SCP actu...

During summer time, our goal is to try to achive a single motor&propeller helicopter on Crazyflie by removing three propellers and motors. Week one and two, we measured the thrust on a single motor of crazyflie by diving the total thrust of four motors by four. We found the thrust is not enough to l...

This week, I finally decided my project for this summer with Prof. Mehta.

Based on the framework that we developed for cooperative localization, we further consider how to optimize (or minimize the cost) this process with constrained resource. This paper may be the most related one, and I will f...

This week I worked with Jerry, Likai and Carol to test Crazyflie's thrust force. We used the method from [1] to measure the thrust force created by one motor and one propeller on crazyflie with different PWM signal. From the measurement, we conclude the system needs more than one motor to provide en...
