Hi, I am Akshay!
I am a Spring 2019 Masters in Robotics Engineering graduate from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, MA, USA. I have an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering (Spring 2017) from Malaviya National Institute Of Technology Jaipur, India
I am an incoming Robotics Software Engineer at Modbot, San Fracisco, CA
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 performance enhancement as well.
I have been a senior member of ZINE, the robotics and research group of Malaviya National Institute Of Technology Jaipur, India; I was involved in several robotics research projects there. I also mentored juniors for robotics competitions and organised several workshops and delivered lectures on topics like Integrated Circuits and Microcontrollers, Ethical Hacking and Sensors to more than 600 students.
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!
