I am very glad to announce that our "Fully-Immersive Hapto-Audio-Visual Framework for Remote Touch" has been awarded as the "Best Student Poster" at the Proceeding of the 11th IEEE International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology (IIT’15), Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 1-3, 2015.
I am especially thankful to Professor Webjørn Rekdalsbakken, Department of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Aalesund University College. He gave me the chance to teach Real time computer programming together with Girts Strazdins and with Ivar Blindheim. I really enjoyed this experience. During the last year course in Real Time Systems, our students focused on several challenges that currently affect the filed of maritime applications and related industry. In the following, an overview of the
This week is a special one. It is the coding and programming week arranged over large parts of the world, a project which involves little students and people of all ages getting a complete insight into programming. Aalesund University College has been involved in this fantastic project and thanks to my colleague, Kjell Inge Tomren, I also had the chance to give my contribution to the event. Programming is fun, and teaching programming to little students is even more exciting!
When I started my PhD studies at Aalesund University College, I gave my contribution to the setting up of the Mechatronics Lab. One major contribution consisted in developing the website for the newly constituted Mechatronics Laboratory. This work has been done as extra in my spare time. The website is based Joomla. Joomla is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be us
Ocean Talent Camp is an event that encompasses all offshore industries, and a wide variety of businesses from all around the region of Sunnmøre . Recruitment is the main focus. This event is organised every year by Aalesund University College. During this even all the researchers and PhD students are invited to present their ongoing work by means of a poster exhibition. Quite unexpectedly, one of my poster has been awarded with the price for "Best PhD poster". Here is the awarded poster.
Here a small presentation that I have prepared for our students so that they can learn how to program modular snake robots.
I am very glad to represent Aalesund University College at the Proceedings of the 5th IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (BioRob2014), here in São Paulo, Brazil. My presentation will be on Friday, August 15 and I am really looking forward to present ModGrasp.
The main idea of this project consists of developing a modular robotic hand. A camera is embedded in the hand palm. This will allow for a stereo vision distance estimation of the object to grasp using only one camera. The idea consists in taking two pictures from different point of view by moving the arm where the hand will be placed. The two photos are then used to create a stereo image in order to estimate the distance from the object to grasp.
