Universiti Brunei Darussalam has opened the application to their Postdoctoral Fellow Scheme. Here’s the announcement article. We are delighted to announce an open call for postdoctoral applications at Universiti Brunei Darussalam. As a leading research University, we are seeking highly qualified researchers who are dedicated to making a significant impact in their chosen field. In […]
We have added the Next Level Racing F-GT simulator cockpit to our lab. Together with the Logitech G920 steering wheel and pedal, they allow us to drive in the Carla simulator comfortably. This comes handy for data collection in our autonomous driving research. We certainly need a larger screen for our set up. . This
Hafiq’s Deep Reinforcement Learning-based robot is doing well in crowd navigation. The DRL model was trained in one crowd setting and tested in different unseen crowd settings. In simulation, we have tested with up to 12 moving obstacles at a speed close to the robot. In real-world, we have tested with 4 obstacles at a
UBD hosted the International Workshop on Biodiversity and Bioinspiration from 9-13 Jan. The Faculty of Science (FOS), the Faculty of Integrated Technologies (FIT), the School of Digital Science (SDS) and the Institute for Biodiversity and Environmental Research (IBER) in collaboration with Virginia Tech (VT) co-organised the workshop. The participants visited the UBD-VT International Lab located
The battery pack of the NAO robot has “intelligent” charging circuit that prevents the battery from charging when the battery’s voltage falls below a set value. This would deem the battery useless and call for replacement. Our NAO was idle for about two years when restriction on physical activities was in place due to the
The School of Digital Science has acquired a Niryo NED 6-DoF robotic arm. This added opportunities for us to experiment with manipulation tasks in robotic. The video below is our first project with the NED. This is a lab project by three third year students in the Bachelor of Digital Science: Firdaus, Luqman and Farah.
The turnout was good considering that there were parallel sessions at the same time. Syamimi, Hafiq and Beng handled the event. . The workshop was hosted in iCenter as one of the many programs in DevFest Brunei 2022 organized by GDG Brunei and WTM Brunei. The event was a one day event on Sunday, 4
We are hiring a full-time research assistant (RA) for our human activities discovery project. The work should start in Jan 2023. . The RA will implement the software system we have developed for unsupervised human activity discovery on a Turtlebot 2 mobile robot. This will involve integrating the software system alongside the Navigation stack in
Syamimi and Haifq with a few members of Robolab will be conducting a robotic workshop at the DevFest Brunei 2022 organized by Google Developers Group (GDG) Brunei and Women Techmakers Brunei. Exploring Robot Programming with Python 👩🏽💻 Suitable for: Beginners and Intermediates in Robotics ⏰ Time & Room allocation: 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm at
We have gotten the Logitech G920 steering wheel and pedal for our self-driving car project. It is much more natural to drive with the steering wheel and pedal than the keyboard and mouse. It works in Carla and will be used in the data collection phase. This will be Syamimi‘s toy for a while.
