  • Nath, Vishnu (2012-05)
    My research deals with incorporating Artificial Intelligence into a humanoid robot by making a cognitive model of the learning process. The goal is to “teach” a robot to fire a gun by allowing it to make small errors and ...

  • Zhou, Yichen (2019-05)
    For robots to interact with humans, it is important that they have the ability to perceive information from both audio and visual signals. The project is designed to let the robot point to the person in the simulation ...

  • Fu, Jiarong (2013-05)
    The goal of this project is to demonstrate that the Kohonen self-organizing map is a physiologically plausible model, by constructing it from the Hodgkin-Huxley neuron model and the Spike Timing-Dependent Plasticity model. ...

  • Wang, Felix (2011-05)
    In this work, I explore the behaviors and metrics relating to a nonlinear dynamical multi-scale model of associative memory developed by Alex Duda. The model utilizes an ab initio approach with the classic Hodgkin-Huxley ...

  • Xu, Shaoyuan (2015-05)
    There is an anthropomorphic robot in out lab whose name is Bert. One of the basic methods to control the robot is by voice. The voice signal goes into Bert's ears. But there is a problem in that to cool down the chips in ...

  • Law, Allan (2012-05)
    The aim of this thesis is to provide a simple visual closed loop control method to enable a humanoid robot to reach out towards an object in its visual field in 3D space. To achieve this task, the robot utilizes stereo ...

  • Findlay, Junia (2014-05)
    The motivation for this research is to be able to replicate a simplified neuronal model onto an FPGA using VHDL logic. Once the artificial neuron is created, self-organizing algorithms (Kohonen Maps) will be implemented. ...

  • Hannigan, Emily (2016-05)
    The sense of touch is one of the most important, yet overlooked, senses in robotics. For a robot to learn like and interact with humans, it must be able to feel the world. Prototyped for this study was a 5 x 5 touch sensor ...
