I worked as an undergraduate robotics researcher under the wing of REDS Lab Imperial College London on a swarm robotics project looking at reconfigurable robots.
The concept is a 4 cubed hinged robot that can reconfigure to all the different tetromino shapes. The ultimate goal is for each robot unit to communicate between each other and work as a swarm to create larger geometries.
I developed my CAD and 3D printing skills, my Raspberry Pi and Arduino skills and my research and analytical skills. I learnt what research entails and worked with other PhD students from the lab, from which I learnt multiple skills and made me grow as an engineer.
