Summary of my past research progress

During my time at UCLA as an exchange student, I got to join LEMUR and worked as an undergraduate researcher for the Winter and Spring quarter.

I was responsible for high and low level testing of the robot compiler (RoCo). I completed the test code for the Pa...

Over this past quarter, I have been working on refactoring and improving the RoCo API, and merging the mechanical, electrical, and code interfaces in an organic manner that lets the users work on different parts of the robot concurrently.

Working on RoCo

Over the first two quarters of the past...

At the end of last year I had a constraint solving solution that did not scale well with complexity. It quickly became obvious that it would not suffice. Therefore, I began this year by tackling that problem once more. After trying a few more methods, we decided that the best solution would be to si...

Research into the use of MEMS actuators with malleable robots has moved along at a steady pace this quarter. Initial investigations started with an in depth look at straight line linkage systems that could be incorporated into the design.The straight line constraint is important due to the fact that...

For the past two quarters, the Robot Compiler (roco) team has been working on improving the roco codebase, cleaning up and documenting the code. As mentioned in my previous blog post, we set out with the goal of creating a codebase that was more easily understandable, extensible, and usable. Now, as...
