A Python based system designed to allow for the creation of printable robots through an easy to use web interface
Cooperative localization is still a challenging task for cooperative robot control. CoLo is a robotic simulation environment for cooperative localization or cooperative simultaneous localization and mappi...
Using reiforcement learning to build better robots through the co-optimization of robot control and structure
The production of SCP actuators currently requires constant human supervision to determine whether it has reached the optimal mechanical and physical characteristics. This is both an inefficient and inaccurate process. Techniques such as computer vision could help provide an effective automated production system.
The information exchange and fusion is essential to the success of multirobot systems.
High performance radio frequency (RF) transceivers require careful engineering design in expensive RF processes and large chip areas for RF passives. The proposed design of an integrated all-digital single-chip radio transceiver will not require any off-chip components, and can be moved from process to process, layout to layout with minimum effort. Thus, the single-chip radio can be easily included onto any digital microcontroller to enable wireless communication between multiple nodes.
Designing control systems for autonomous vehicles in mixed-autonomy situations
A complete computational tool that enables casual end-users to design and fabricate their customizable objects.
The objective of this research is to create algorithms, methods, and tools to allow casual end-users to leverage the knowledge of engineering experts to easily and effectively create val...
Printable robotics is an upcoming field that focuses on the inexpensive development of customizable robots. In order for this process to become mainstream, the process by which robotics are designed must become much simpler: the mechanical, electrical, and software components must be readily available and easily accessible to the everyday user.
This project aims to design and build a small, printable, controllable single-motor flying robot.
A single motor flyer is an engineering experiment that trades algorithmic simplicity for structural simplicty. If a single-motor drone could be built successfully, the potentially reduced cost and des...
