Current Projects

Distributed Camouflage
research on the mechanism of cephalopods’ camouflage, and mimic it with artificial camouflage system.
Grasping with Kinova Robot Arm
the project aims to control the Kinova arm to grasp objects in the environment automatically. We program in C++ and Python with ROS. First use RGB-D camera to calibrate the robot and get centroids of objects in the environment. Then calculate the translation between source and target frames. Finally, control the arm to reach and grasp the specified object.

Previous Projects

Camouflage on Droplets Platform
The Droplets are a small, low-cost mobile robotics platform developed here in the Correll Lab. We got a swarm of one hundred Droplets up and running, and I designed a distributed camouflage algorithm and applied it on the swarm.

Self-contained, soft robotic hand
The soft robotic hand is composed of soft pneumatic actuator modules that are equipped with strain and pressure sensing. Equipped with the Kinova Arm, we won the Manipulation Competition of RoboSoft Grand Challenge, Livorno, Italy.IMG_3038
