Jade Yang, Assistant Professor, Computer Graphics Technology/Computer
Information Technology is a recipient of the Fall 2013 Proposal Development Grant.
Professor Yang’s proposed project addresses the fundamental problem of moving a one-part polyhedral robot in a known and static environment. The problem is six-dimensional since the robot can translate along and rotate about all three axes of the Euclidean space. Path planning for six degrees of freedom is crucial because in most real world applications it is the minimum degree for spatial planning and the solution to it can be used as the key module in multi-robot systems.
