Jory is a PhD student which graduate with an Honors Undergraduate Research Fello with other research interest in robotic motion planning, machine learning and computer graphics.
This summer I worked on a project called RegionRRT, which allowed the user to define a region in a environment. Once the region is defined a single node will generate in the region. The node generated in the region will serve as a goal configuration while the RRT reaches that node. Once the RRT reaches the node the region will delete and continue to the next region or goal configuration.
