This is the spotlight talk I gave at the Robotics: Science and Systems conference about our work on controlling soft robots. The corresponding paper was a finalist for the Best Systems Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
This is the accompanying video for our RSS 2019 paper entitled "Modeling and Control of Soft Robots Using the Koopman Operator and Model Predictive Control," by Daniel Bruder, R. Brent Gillespie, C. David Remy, and Ram Vasudevan.
This is the accompanying video for our ICRA 2019 paper entitled, "Nonlinear System Identification of Soft Robot Dynamics Using Koopman Operator Theory," by Daniel Bruder, C. David Remy, and Ram Vasudevan.
This video showcases the course for which I was a GSI entitled, "Engineering 100: Designs in Nature and Engineering." For their final project, student teams designed and built remote-controlled robots to pick up ping-pong balls and other objects.
This is the accompanying video for our submission to ICRA 2017 entitled, "Model Based Control of Fiber Reinforced Elastofluidic Enclosures," by Daniel Bruder, Audrey Sedal, Joshua Bishop-Moser, Sridhar Kota, and Ram Vasudevan.
