I break things, I fix things, I play with robots.
The motion of inexpensive robots are noisy and not precise enough for tight-tolerance assembly tasks. We develop an algorithm to achieve precision by leveraging environmental contact.
Powered wheelchairs are often difficult to operate for its target audience, due to other associated disabilities. We develop a fully-autonomous wheelchair capable of robustly navigating indoor environments based on the Robot Operating System.
Designed, built, and tested model aircraft from scratch. Final takeoff weight: 1.54 kg, payload weight: 0.676 kg, top speed: 60 m/s, wingspan: 1.12 m.
Designed, built, and tested miniature retractable airspeed sensor for characterisation of laminar flow control using dielectric barrier discharge devices. Programmed in LabVIEW, tested using custom-built in-situ mini wind tunnel, flown in fall 2013.
