We are seeking research assistants to work 10 hours per week in the IDEAlab on the Poly campus. This project will focus on developing a testing platform built on the Robotic Operating System (ROS) for testing various foldable robots with a number of different integrated hardware solutions. The project will require familiarity with Python, Linux, serial and ethernet-based communication protocols. The goal is that by the end of the summer, numerous systems will be communicating and controlled over a ROS-based network.

Professor Aukes will be teaching an EGR598 class this Spring called Foldable Robotics. Description Foldable Robotics is a class which comes from a new class of active robotic devices being developed in research labs across the country. These devices are designed and built using flat sheets of a wide variety of materials, and folded up to create both form and motion. This class studies these devices from initial prototype and design through implementation and optimization, with a focus on application-specific projects which seek to solve problems of cost, parallelism, complexity, and time with a relatively fast and easy prototyping method.
