Hafiq’s DRL-based robot is doing well in crowd navigation

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 …

Our NAO is back alive

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 …

Upgraded the Raspberry Pi 4 firmware of Niryo NED 6-DoF robotic arm

We are working on the Niryo NED 6-DoF robotic arm that the School of Digital Science has recently acquired. The RPi firmware that came with the NED is an older version and is not compatible with the latest version of Niryo Studio, 4.1.0. So, we upgraded the firmware to 4.1.0.
