[The website is launched!]

Web applications Added on 27/12/2011

I finally launch my new web site. This version has a new design and is made using PHP (CodeIgniter) and JQuery in order to support mobile devices.

Although I quite liked my old Flash site and I had to make a few tradeoffs between the looks and reliability of this version, unfortunately Flash is becoming a bit outdated. Besides, new design was needed as my mindset changed quite a bit since I designed my previous portfolio about 4 years ago.

I will be adding content over the next couple of weeks, mainly some work I have recently done in Matlab as well as a new Lego robot video. Follow me on Twitter for updates!

Why I Left Facebook

I decided to delete almost all my activity and all my photos from Facebook when they announced that Timeline would become compulsory. While I really think that Timeline is a bad idea as it lets your history be browsed in a very easy manner, this was not the only reason I left...

Stardust Colonies

Alien farm has officially become Stardust Colonies, after a game name poll I did on Facebook some time ago. The web site will launch soon so that people can read more about the game and join alpha testing...

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.

Citations count fails to measure the impact of research

Academic career progress is often judged by so-called "h-index", that measures how much your research is being cited. I recently had a detailed look at what exactly the citations, specifically those reported by Google Scholar, amount to. Only a relatively small fraction of the reported citations corresponded to research being applied or reproduced in a meaningful way.

V-REP, Gazebo or ARGoS? A robot simulators comparison

Let’s have a look at three commonly used open-source simulators for robotics: V-REP, Gazebo and ARGoS, to find out which one suits your project the best.

Designing Effective Roadmaps for Robotics Innovation

Automated factories, autonomous delivery drones, self-driving cars: these and similar technologies will soon touch every aspect of our lives. An engaging discussion about how these technologies are regulated and innovated took place at the IROS 2017 conference.
