2018-08-07: Kastan Day Exit Presentation Summer 2018

After returning to the Ai for a third summer, Kastan Day has wrapped up yet another successful internship!  This time around, he was working on a Robotic In-Space Assembly project.

Last summer, he created barcode-like fiducials to be placed on objects, such as trusses, but he wanted to progress away from that this year.  He started using cameras with 3D depth information to create point-cloud (position) data in order to find objects in a space.  Once the object is found, the robot can pick it up and assemble it with other objects to create a final structure.  This way, objects can be found based on their intrinsic shape.  Watch his Exit Presentation to learn more!
