Identification of Beneficial Morphological Computation on Soft Hands

02. May 2017


Compliance in soft hands can be both beneficial and detrimental to functionality. Although recent work has shown the benefits of compliance to object and environment geometry, there is little work in identifying and avoiding the negative aspects of compliance while controlling soft hands. However, a planner or a feedback-controller that exploits compliance should avoid the regions of detrimental morphological computation and guide the interactions to the favorable ones. Luckily recent work in simulation has shown promising results in differentiating between beneficial/detrimental morphological computations. The challenge ahead is to whether these results can be transferred to real systems. Our lab's work in hand sensorization is a possible tool in this path. more to: Identification of Beneficial Morphological Computation on Soft Hands

Sensorized In-Hand Manipulation

08. May 2017


The RBO Hand 2 is a highly compliant soft robotic hand. Its actuators passively adapt their shape to different objects and the environment. Even though the control of the pneumatic hand is relatively simple, it is capable of complex in-hand manipulation. The recent addition of liquid metal strain sensors has created the opportunity to obtain better feedback about the current state of the hand. The goal of this thesis is to utilize this new sensor information to make the execution of different in-hand manipulation tasks more robust. more to: Sensorized In-Hand Manipulation

Leveraging Data from Mass Spectrometry to Improve Cross-Links

02. May 2017


Cross-Links are experimentally derived distance constraints that can be used to guide protein structure prediction. The current cross-linking data is obtained from multiple mass spectrometer runs and pre-filtered. In the pre-fltering step we lose a lot of information. For instance, there is ambiguity in the data that is currently handled in a greedy fashion. The idea of this project is to go one step back and look at the "raw" data from the mass spectrometry experiments. The hope is by including external information and dealing directly with the ambiguity in the data we can improve the number of cross-links and/or need fewer experiments for a similar yield. more to: Leveraging Data from Mass Spectrometry to Improve Cross-Links

Leveraging Crosslinks for Template Retrieval

15. May 2017


Cross-Link Mass Spectometry is an experimental technique that provides residue distance constraints on the native structure. The method has been previously used to guide ab initio protein structure prediction. You will develop in this thesis a method that leverages cross-links to find homologous structures to the target in the PDB. For that, you will compare the distance constraints provided by cross-links with simulated cross-links for the templates from the PDB. more to: Leveraging Crosslinks for Template Retrieval
