RESEARCH ACHIEVEMENT & AWARDS
2005/08-Present
Multi-robot formation system:
Project Description: Supported by Research Grants Council of HongKong. As a team main researcher, I concentrate on the topic that how to localize a team of robots in an unknown environment and simultaneously build a map. Several papers have been published in IEEE conference and SCI international journals.
Technical Description: Based on the platform of our Climbing Robot and Pioneer III, program using C++ under linux OS, to realize Simultaneous Localization and Mapping in an unknown environment. The robots can communicate with each other and exchange their information from vision and sonar sensors. The C++ programming involves QT/GTK GUI, Socket, Multi-Thread, Multi-Process, etc.
2004/06-2006/05
Six-wheel Terrain Climbing Robot Project Description: Supported by National 863 Funds. As a team core member, I design the control system, and study the binocular vision algorithm. This project has already passed the verification of the 863 Expert Jury.
Technical Description: We utilize DSP Ti2407 and CPLD (Altera MAXII) to control 8 brushless motors and drive the robot to climb small obstacles and avoid large obstacles based on the information from sensors.
2004/06-2004/10
Multi-output Pulse Generator of Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics

Project Description: Supported by 985 Funding of USTC. As a team core member, I design the control system. The robot has attended the fair of Achievements of Suzhou industry park several times.
Technical Description: We utilize DSP Ti2407 to control four servos and drive the robot to swim in the water like a fish. The robot-fish can avoid obstacles by using the information from infrared sensors.
2002/10-2003/12
Small-size Robot Soccer Team of USTC
Project Description: Supported by 985 Funding of USTC. As a team main member, I design a high-current drive circuit of robot motor and a smart charge device for the robots.
Technical Description: Design an H bridge motor driven circuit; design an auto-charger for robots using MAX713.
2002/06-2002/10
Robot Competition in USTC
Project Description: Supported by Research Grants Funding of USTC. As a leader, I allocate the task and design the circuit system of the robot. Finally, with the team cooperation, we won the top prize.
Technical Description: We utilize MCU 89C51 to receive the information from infrared sensors and control the robots to pick up balls and then put them into an appointed box.
