The School of Digital Science (SDS) welcomed visitors from the Darussalam Enterprise (DARe), Brunei Innovation Lab (BIL) and Shell LiveWIRE. We presented a selection of SDS’s AI and Robotics projects at Robolab. This engagement provides our researchers with the feedback from the industry perspective.
We have upgraded our Turtlebot2 to ROS Noetic on Ubuntu 20.04. The Turtlebot2 was previously running on ROS Kinetic. . In the video above, the Turtlebot2 was mapping out the office floor of the School of Digital Science, UBD. It was controlled wirelessly with a PS3 controller. The video has been speeded up x2.

The bumper of one of our Turtlebot2 was jammed. The center and left side were jam and could not push in. It turned out that the fixture for center bumper mechanism came out of its holder. It was probably pushed up too much. It is now fixed. Kobuki has gone out of production and it
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
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.
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.
