3rd week: FS PCB

This week I’ve learned how to manage EAGLE Software and developed a PCB to convert the intervals of the issued signals transmitted by the transducer for a 0-5 V range, so it can be read by the arduino.



2nd week: ROS & C++ familiarization

This week I familiarized myself with ROS (Robot Operating System) and C++ with the help of tutorials, research and also attended a ROS workshop. This will be crucial in helping me explore and create applications for the thesis that I’m currently developing.

Hello World!

Hello and welcome to my blog!

My name’s Luís Almeida and I’m currently developing a Master’s Thesis in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Aveiro in Portugal. This blog serves to share with you the work I’ll be doing throughout this thesis, which focus on the interaction between Humans and robots with the main goal of objects transfer.  You are welcome to share your ideas or suggestions about this theme.
