🧐 trussbot:

I am currently working as an undergraduate research assistant in the Sung Robotics Lab. My current project is on the fabrication, actuation, and simulation of the movement of a modular robot constructed from a tetrahedral truss — what we call the TrussBot. Our work closely involves concepts in linear algebra, kinematics, and rigid body dynamics.
