In 2009, I was challenged by [govt agency] via GTRI to develop an Unmaned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which is piloted by a smartphone. In particular, only the sensors on the phone may be used and the flight controller must run on the smartphone. Custom electronics were allowed to interface the phone to the airframe (PHY) […]
When I flew home to Atlanta over Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to visit the “RoboJackets RoboCup Electronics Museum”. Really a nice trip down memory lane. I was on the team from its inception in 2007 till I graduated in 2009. I had the opportunity to lead the team from 2007 to 2009 (system design […]
Duplication of my final post for HTMAA. Grand overview of my final project and a few greatest hits. Teaser! Quick preview of my final project, but first some “greatest hits”. I put most of this work in the content repo, the pictures link to the respective project pages. FabISPkey FabISP remixed. I remixed the FabISP […]
It’s drawing to a close, check out my MAS.863 How to Make (almost) Anything class wrap up/ final project.
Project Overview For the past three years, I have been the team leader for the Georgia Tech RoboJackets Small Size RoboCup team. RoboCup is an international robotic soccer competition designed to drive research in robotics, multi-agent systems, artificial intelligence and the systems which compose those fields. The stated goal of the RoboCup Federation is to […]
During the Spring and early Summer of 2009 I developed two 10.5 foot long, 325 pound unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). My role was technical leader, I oversaw all design of the vehicles. Underwater vehicle construction remains somewhat of a black art where effective design principles are often found through trial and error rather than analytically. […]
Presently the only platforms to study human robotics interaction are expensive custom platforms which are developed over the course of several years at a very high development cost. Thanks to rapid growth in the toy industry, and the dramatic economies of scale, robotic toys have become available at very low cost for the functionality they […]
