We had a lab trial program for lower grades on Aug 7th, 2021. We held it in a small group due to the current situation with COVID19. We introduced our lab mainly about research themes, seminars and activities we have and the current information on job hunting. Then we explained the theory of the movement and structure of robots and experienced control programming.
Below are comments from two students who participated in the program.
It was my first time to actually see a snake robot. To my surprise, the control system was simpler than I had imagined and tuning was difficult even for a robot with less parameters. I realized the importance of studying the theory and that I should study harder in my major course now. I was a little bit relieved to know that I won’t have a full schedule after entering the lab. Information on job hunting was also very helpful. Another surprise was that every student had his or her own theme instead of the whole lab working on one big theme. I learned that it’s important to be interested in something particular so I will investigate what will be useful and valuable in the future. Thank you.
I am not sure what sort of robot I want to build yet but in MaLab you can study different types of robots which is good for a student like me. I noticed that even if you could built a robot it is difficult to write the program to manipulate it properly. They explained to us not only about the research but the procedure to enter the lab and graduate school which was very helpul. Thank you.
