Simulation playground decoration progress: We attached April tag with the square hoop and hang them at the ceiling. Since there is a strong wind coming out of the wind tunnel on the simulation room, we used a plate to block the wind tunnel. (Effect see demo 1:) Demo 1: Strong wind disturbance...

For the last few days, we have been working on two problems: the ball possession problem and the ML-based ball detection algorithm. Ball Possession At first, we attempted to detect the possession of the ball in the basket using IR sensors. However, both the sensors we had gave a very small range...

New Capabilities: Robot Compiler, RoCo is a sophisticated origam robot generator that a user can define how to cut and fold paper, and change design parameters with ease. I have been working on to export roco generated robot designs into physics simulation software, Webots, so that the user can fu...
