Salto Jump Tests and Foot Design

I worked on drop tests, jumping tests, and foot design for Salto for a year-long research project. I reported force, jump height, and crouch height for over 200 hours in the summer of 2017. This included parsing data through MATLAB, Google Sheets, and Excel.

Other work for the project included SLA, laser cutting, molding, milling, and design of Salto parts, designing and manufacturing of testing fixtures, and collaboration and advising of two other researchers. The paper, “Self-Engaging Spined Gripper with Dynamic Penetration and Release for Steep Jumps”, has been submitted to IEEE ICRA 2018 and was under the advisement of Professor Ronald S. Fearing in the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab.
