In my off time, I love exploring far-off countries, hiking the off-beat paths of the rocky mountains, and playing the latest in open world action/survival games on PC.
An updated version of the original Cricket, the mark 2 version trades the tank-style treads for wheels improving energy efficiency when traversing flat surfaces and refines the vehicle structure to optimize weight distribution.
The second generation of kSim brings the simulation suite into the modern age, introducing an improved architecture, modern C++ styling, and a generalized API for supporting multiple graphics engines.
The hurricane is a high payload vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial vehicle for medium-long range transport of sensors and supplies with little required operator interaction.
The Cricket urban search and rescue robot was an advanced quadrupedal ground vehicle designed to traverse complex collapsed terrain in the wake of disaster in order to locate trapped victims and deliver crucial medical supplies as needed.
The thrust vectoring (TV) quadrotor is a highly maneuverable high-payload vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial vehicle designed for short-medium range transport of sensors and supplies in and around critical regions in the wake of natural disasters.
kSim is a high-accuracy simulation environment for robotic vehicles supporting multi-body dynamics, finite element simulation of full or surface deformation, spring/damping effects, and OpenGL rendering.
The under-actuated self-adaptive (UASA) robotic hand was developed to address the complexity, cost, and fragility issues of commercial hands by employing a single large motor, distributive gearing and passive spring/damper elements.
