The purpose of this project is to investigate the question “Does haptic feedback with visual feedback offer better boundary control for robot swarms than just visual feedback?” Moving large swarms of agents can be challenging so the goal of this project is to reduce agent collisions with fixed objects by giving the operator a vibrational
Using virtual reality to see how humans anticipate changes in ground surfaces will help build better prosthetics and bipedal robots.
Simulating outdoor terrains with virtual reality and a treadmill can improve the versatility and performance of leg prosthetics.
This research is being conducted to investigate if leg kinematics are unique and can be characterized in reference to a 2-D plane when walking on surfaces of different compliance. By using inertial measurements units and math relating quaternions and rotation matrices it is possible to represent leg motion by measuring joint angles between the hip,
