My past work involved robotic precision assembly with high degree of positional accuracy. Our research focused on the design of a compliant, position sensing robotic wrist that used a fuzzy logic rule base to generate position compensation commands to the robot during an assembly attempt.
I worked with a research group on design of a stereo vision system for a mobile robot. A stereo vision system approximates human head and eye movements. It is used to gather and process 3D information about the surroundings of a mobile robot as part of its navigation system.
In most practical walking robot designs a six-legged configuration is adopted for stable motion of the machine. But they have a drawback in maneuverability. Turning is often a problem that may require a complex control system design. Our research effort focused on development of an omni-directional six-legged walking machine.
