Past Projects [Current Projects]
Behavior Planning for Character Animation
We are exploring a behavior planning approach to automatically generate realistic motions for animated characters.
Desktop Robotics
Is it possible to build robots which take the desktop as their task domain?
Dynamic Climbing
The goal of this project is to show how robots can gain access to difficult-to-reach places by taking full advantage of their dynamics and the potential reaction forces afforded by the environment. We build robots that use dynamic motions to climb vertically using frictional contact forces.
Fine Motion Planning for Assembly
GPU-accelerated Computer Vision
We are exploiting programmable graphics hardware to improve existing vision algorithms and enable novel approaches to robot perception.
