Robotics

I like programming in Octave (the Free Matlab clone), and the Player/Stage robot simulator, so I wrote a library to connect them. I suggest you also install Octave-Forge, though my library shouldn’t require it.

At one point I was doing evolutionary robotics using Teem.

I fooled around for a while on an autonomous lawnmower.

I built a small wheeled base to compete in the 1994 Sumo robotics competition in Toronto. A few years later I upgraded the robot to act as a probe for the Ottawa Space Simulation along with Neil Fraser’s robot arm. Eventually I expanded the base and replaced the wheels with tank treads. I also built a claw for the arm.

Building on my experience with the Space Sim I spent fall 2000 and summer 2001 working for an Artificial Intelligence company called Applied AI which focuses on intelligent robots.
