My Final Year Project in UTM

          Wheeled mobile robot is a machine that navigates from one point to another, using actuated wheels, either in mobile or steering manner. The differentially steered drive mobile robot is a robot with two separately actuated wheels. This type of mobile robot is classified under the nonholonomic mobile robot system because the total degree of freedom is more than controllable actuators. Mobile robot navigation can be divided into robot localization, planning and tracking. In this project, navigation was achieved using odometry navigation. The B├ęzier curve was used for the trajectory planning because the initial and final heading of the mobile robot can be easily determined. A nonlinear control law was used for the mobile robot trajectory tracking. The project was implemented in the Robot Operating System robot framework, pioneered by Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The final outcome of this project is production of a usable navigation module for this class of nonholonomic mobile robot and can be used to program the robot for the Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union Robot Contest.

Kuala Lumpur Shots

Magnificent night view of Petronas Twin Tower

KL is getting more packed year by year

In Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

Taman KLCC

So called KLCC - Bukit Bintang walkway. First time here

My participation in ICIAS 2012

These are some of the pictures during my participation in 4th International Conference in Intelligent and Advance System (ICIAS 2012).

World Congress in Engineering, Science, and Technology (ESTCON), claimed to be the world largest congress with eight parallel conferences.

It is held in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, very famous area in Kuala Lumpur

In the opening ceremony, by the Minster of Higher Education.

In the Plenary Hall in KLCC Convention Centre, many participants here.

The organizer is Universiti Teknologi Petronas.

First Keynote for ESTCON, Prof Celia

Second ESTCON keynote, Prof Feng

Some of the poster presentation sessions.

Poster presentation.

The ESTCON gala dinner in KLCC Grand Ballroom.

One of the presentation by UTM

The conference keynote, Dr. Takeda from Hitachi Ltd.

In the end, quite a good experience joining this event.
