Congratulations, you've reached the portion of the website
where I show you one of my major interests. I thoroughly enjoy
working in the robotics field. Here is some of the stuff that
This is a serial communication device I created. It offers
numerous functions for the robotic hobbyist. CMU232 will
be commercially available shortly.
- Personal Rover Project
I work with the Personal Rover Project in the Nourbakhsh
Lab. I usually end up getting involved in numerous robotic
activities as a result of being around the wonderful people
in our lab.
- Mobot 2002
Mobot is a competition for an autonomous line following
robot. The competition is held annually at Carnegie Mellon
University. Our entry received the 2nd place award in 2002,
and I am planning to enter in 2004
Design MEMS Chip Placement
We designed and implemented an autonomous MEMS chip placement
system. This system will pick out die on silicon wafer and
place them into separate containers automatically.
- USAR (Urban Search and
A small quick and successful, Lego robot that we happened
to take a few pictures of.
- Technological Pranks
Robots may have committed these hacks.

I'm not going to bore you by listing the same digikey type
links that you get on every single robotics site that's ever
been created. Instead, here are some guys that do some really
great robotic stuff so go and look at it.
Rosenberg - Chuck is one of my coadvisors and knows almost
everything about robotics.
Nourbakhsh - Illah advises and pays me and heads up some
big robot stuff. He teaches one of the great undergraduate
robotics courses, Mobile Robotics Programming Lab.
Grabowski - I was lucky enough to have Bob as a TA for
mechatronic design. Go check out their millibots.
