Projects Window Washing Robot, Mechatronics Spring 2016

• Worked with a multidisciplinary team to design and build a robot to wash windows autonomously

• Designed software and circuit for autonomous sensing and locomotion of the robot

• Maintained documentation of requirements, circuits, and code throughout project Multiple Projects, Intro to Robotics Spring 2016

• Computer Vision, PID control, Motion Planning, Localization, Inverse Kinematics

• Constructed a remote controlled NXT robot for USAR related tasks including: moving up and down stairs and ramps, retrieving a payload, and going over rubble

• Designed and built an autonomous NXT robot to find and deliver a payload Inverted Pendulum, Embedded Control Systems Spring 2016

• Analyzed and designed automatic control systems with Matlab

• Implemented a PID controller using MPLAB on a development board containing a PIC microcontroller to balance an inverted pendulum against external disturbances

• Transfer function and state space modeling of linear dynamic physical systems Elevator, Distributed Embedded Systems Fall 2015

• Wrote high level requirements for given system architecture with a team

• Designed software for all controllers within architecture

• Verified that design met specifications through rigorous design process KUKA youBot Arm, Robot Kinematics and Dynamics Fall 2015

• Manipulated the arm to follow trajectories by using inverse kinematics

• Used pre-existing functions to have the arm draw with a marker

• Programmed the arm to draw and play tic-tac-toe autonomously without losing Experience Football – Coach Rich Lackner
