Hi, I am Akshay!
I am a Robotics Software Engineer at Modbot, San Francisco, CA.
I have an MS in Robotics Engineering (2019) degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, MA, USA and a BTech. in Electrical Engineering (2017) degree 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.
My other areas of research and interests include visual servoing, mobile robotics, SLAM, computer vision, deep learning and reinforcement learning among others.
CHECK OUT MY PROJECT EXPERIENCES, SKILLS AND EXPERTISE
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!
