My name is Tyler Frasca, I am in my first year of my ms/PhD program at Tufts University. I am working under Matthias Scheutz in the Human Robot Interaction (HRI) lab. I am interested in developing cognitive companions
Currently, I am in the process of developing a robot which will learn to play and score the game of corn hole.
I have just finished working on a telerobotic system which the operator can control a robotic arm using electromyography (EMG) signals. The system relies on the nearest neighbors supervised machine learning algorithm.
In order to make telerobotic control more immersive, my group used the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality display to allow the operator to control a three-axis gimbal on a robot. The operator can naturally move their head and follow an object they see on camera
