The Action Lab
Madhi, our card-carrying mechanical engineer, won the first prize in Arts in the ME Research Expo. Here is his beautiful poster on “Manipulating a Bull-Whip to Hit a Target”
As part of the whip project, Jack the Whipper, a professional whip performer, visited the action lab as a subject for a motion capture and kinematic data collection session. By testing the limits of human motor control, we may begin to answer questions on how to apply such complex tasks towards robotics. See the full article here.
For our whip-cracking project, Jack the Whipper, a professional whip-cracking stage performer, visited our lab and we recorded very cool motion capture and kinematic data. It was a blast!
