Hi, I am Akshay!

I am a Robotics Software Engineer at Modbot, San Francisco, CA.

I am a 2019 Masters in Robotics Engineering graduate from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, MA, USA. I have an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering(2017) from Malaviya National Institute Of Technology Jaipur, India

My current work involves robotics software stack development in C++ and Python for modular industrial manipulator arms. My recent work has involved developing algorithms for robot control, dynamics, collision detection, system modeling and identification and robot simulation. I have experience in robot performance testing and enhancement and collaborative robot safety as well.

BLOG POSTS

These blogs are more of a collection of my personal learnings/understandings assimilated from various other websites, courses, projects and experience and less of polished blogs or tutorials!

But, hey if I do anyone any good with these, I don't mind! You can hit me up to talk more about them!
