So, Final year of Engineering at the University of Queensland.
Final Year to do something Interesting, and I’ve found it.
Project Summary: 150x60mm Quadrupedal robot with passive stability and minimal feedback, capable of speeds between .11 and 1.5m/s.
If you think it sounds difficult, you don’t know the half of it, but fortunately there’s a wealth of literature on both natural and robotic movement and stability to help me out. But therein lies the problem. It’s all just too damn interesting. I’ll be reading one paper, and it will reference another, and I’ll jump over to it, and the chain just goes on and on and on. Most of them are only peripherally related at best, but the interest factor keeps pulling me in, and in, and in. It’s probably the equivalent of someone who likes art looking through someones paintings, and the comment on one of them says “Inspired by XXXXX”, at which point they jump off and start looking at them.
Anyway, That’s not really the point. The point is I shouldn’t be doing that, or this, but I need some way to get thoughts out of my head and this is far more efficient than just posting on facebook.
I’ll be detailing my descent into madness whenever I hit a block in my writing, or thought process, so I’m sure whatever is detailed within will be interesting if somewhat incoherent.
