GRASP On Robotics: “Trajectory Planning Using Dynamic and Power Models: a Heuristics-Based Approach”

February 19 at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Abstract: Robot planning is needed for robots to perform purposeful missions in their environments. In realistic situations, planning does not simply involve getting to a desired destination without collisions, but often requires achieving a desired goal configuration in an optimal or near-optimal fashion. Common optimality criteria include minimum distance, minimum time, and minimum energy. To […]

ESE Seminar: “(Re)building Human Dexterity: Inferring Musculoskeletal Dynamics for Next-Generation Assistive Devices & Diagnostics”

February 19 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Zoom – Email ESE for Link jbatter@seas.upenn.edu

While there exist a number of mechanically sophisticated exoskeletons, prostheses, and assistive robots, with articulations similar to those of the intact human arm and hand, these devices remain limited in their ability to augment human dexterity and safely interact with human users and collaborators. In particular, due to the limits of conventional sensing, robots remain […]

PICS Colloquia: “Recent Advances in Modeling Subduction and Viscoelastic Flow in Geodynamic Computations”

February 19 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – email kathom@seas.upenn.edu

Abstract: We will describe two separate but related methodologies that have been implemented in the open source, finite element code ASPECT, which computational geophysicists use to model a wide variety of problems that arise in Earth and Planetary geophysics. The first technique is a volume-of-fluid (VOF) interface tracking algorithm that was originally designed to model […]
