6 week long study to analyze effect of ChairBot's recruitment motion strategies on getting people to play a game of chess. Study of robot's expressive motion on robot persuasion.
TA for Autonomous driving course at OSU. I made an autonomous car which will compete in F1/10 world championship at CPS-2019 in Montreal.
How can we design personality in robotic chairs which can only move. Study of expressive motion and ChairBot personality.
During summerof 2018, worked on an unannounced robotics project to solve a very exciting and challenging robotics problem at the moonshot factory.
Bambino is a derivative of the Blossom robot originally designed at Cornell university. Another graduate student completed his masters in robotics thesis using Bambino.
Simulated and built control system for an alligator inspired robot using cyclic gaits. Analyzed its speed and energy to discover the importance of body undulations and tail movement.
Summer after junior year, I worked on autonomous and human-in-the-loop controller design for minimal social robots (and much more) at Stanford University.
Built a 3D vision-based feedback control system to recognize and localize objects in the environment. The algorithm controls lower-level robot manipulator routines to select contextually appropriate objects, such as a teddy bear to cheer a sad child.
A simple and fun robot which plays catch with you. This robot was part of applied robotics course at OSU and the idea was to make a reliable, interactive robot that was also low cost and easy to make.
