The GRASP Lab is excited to be hosting the Northeast Robotics Colloquium this year on October 12, 2019! See https://nerc.seas.upenn.edu/ for more details on abstract submission, registration, and other logistics.
We have two new preprints available, “Optimal Reduced-order Modeling of Bipedal Locomotion” by Yu-Ming Chen and “Contact-Aware Controller Design for Complementarity Systems” by by Alp Aydinoglu. Feedback is welcome.
Michael will present some of the lab’s recent work, titled ““Exploring models of contact and legged locomotion: existence, uniqueness, and optimality” at the ACC workshop on “Challenges and Solutions for Legged Robotics”
We are excited to present two talks at Dynamic Walking next week!
- Yu-Ming Chen. “Optimal Reduced-order Modeling of a Five-link Planar Robot.” (Wednesday, 11:30am)
- Mathew Halm. “Modeling and Analysis of Non-unique Behaviors in Multiple Frictional Impacts.” (Wednesday, 4:30pm)
Matt has a new preprint available, accepted for publication at RSS 2019, “Modeling and Analysis of Non-unique Behaviors in Multiple Frictional Impacts.” We provide a rigorous analysis of a differential inclusion model of multiple, simultaneous impacts. Feedback is welcome!
Michael will be giving a talk at NASA JPL on April 15th and at Caltech on April 16th.
Congratulations to Matt Halm, DAIR lab member, for his 2019 NSF GRFP award!
Old news, but we are happy to receive a 2018 NSF National Robotics Initiative (NRI) Award!
Michael is happy to be a recipient of a 2018 Google Faculty Research Award!
The camera-ready version Matt’s 2018 WAFR paper, A Quasi-static Model and Simulation Approach for Pushing, Grasping, and Jamming is now available, along with the code. We’ve re-recorded his talk for public viewing, so check it out as well.
