I'm interested more in the controllers of said robotic projects than their function - that aside, I'd like to work on a project that has a practical purpose!
Minimal. I got my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from UC San Diego. Over there I had 3 design classes involving robotics - two of which I learned from significantly. One of these involved building two mechanical turntables operating under PID control to transport balls between each other. In an optional design class I built and designed the controller for a self-righting miniature segway, an unstable system. I have a link to the project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5elYPf93Uo That is the extent of my robotics knowledge!
I want to gain more experience in the field of robotics, and get some personal and professional satisfaction from the building process.
I'm a 22 year old mechanical engineer currently working in aerospace.
