About Us

We love everything mechatronic, science, programming, machine learning, and fabrication (automated or not). These pages are dedicated to teaching methods and concepts related to these areas.

The primary interest in this field relates to robotics and creating dynamic and autonomous systems. Research and development goals include biped dynamic balance through gait tuning on the fly, or applying force to the torso similar to an inverted pendulum. Autonomous functions that I research relate primarily to neural networks and genetic algorithms. As I develop these and other systems, I will explain the basic step that help me achieve my goals through video record.
