ASB 2016

This year, American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) was held in Raleigh, NC from 8/2-8/5. As we did last year, the whole group attended ASB. We flew from Houston to Atlanta. From Atlanta, we rented two cars and drove to the Smoky mountain at Gatlinburg, TN. Next day, after staying at a cabin one night, we visited Clingmans Dome. At the Clingmans Dome, I understood that why this mountain is called the Smoky mountain. In the afternoon, we drove to Raleigh via Charlott. The conference itself was very informative and helpful to all of us. Specifically, for about the half of the studen...

ROS Tutorial

Since Robot Operating System (ROS) becomes more popular and the standards in the academia and industry, I decided to have a ROS tutorial for HUR Group. Two weeks before the Fall 2016 semester starts, I gave a three-day ROS tutorial. Starting 8am till noon for 3 days, I covered ROS history, concepts, programming, topic example, interfacing with depth cameras, git, etc. I also prepared coffee in the morning. ROS version was Indigo and Ubuntu version was 14.04. I wanted to cover the integration of ROS with beaglebone black (BBB), but I had some urgent family issue in Korea and I...

Dynamic Walking 2016

Dynamic Walking Conference 2016 was held at Camp Ohiyesa, in Holly, MI from June 4, 2016 to June 7, 2016. Victor, Kenneth and I attended the conference. We presented two works: one on push recovery mechanism by Victor and one on foot placement estimation during slipping using Capture Point method by Kenneth. This conference was very useful in terms of theoretical approach in bipedal walking. We also met many world-renown researchers. The CAMP itself was interesting and there were many entertaining activities. Obviously, camp fire was fantastic. Some p...
