Hacking on robots, PCBs, microcontrollers and control theory

Autonomous underwater vehicle (RoboSub)

I'm part of the Caltech Robotics Team which is competing in AUVSI/ONR's RoboSub competition. I'm responsible for the electrical systems and control systems.

American Sign Language (ASL) Glove

I'm working with Justin Koch and Walton Chiu to design a glove that can recognize ASL and transmit it wirelessly to a smartphone. Currently using an Atmel microcontroller and RN-42 Bluetooth module.

Robotic Bartender

I'm working on a robotic bartender that given a set of available liquids, it can determine which cocktails it can make, and receive a drink order online. The brains will be a Raspberry Pi for low power and heat.
