Title:
The Sawyer Collaborative Robot: Using its Graphical Programming Interface and a Taste of how ROS Supports It
Date:
March 11th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Axiom Electronics
Beaverton
Abstract:
Brendan Ball will present Sawyer, a Collaborative Robot designed and manufactured by Rethink Robotics to the group.  Sawyer features a Graphical Programming Interface built on top of ROS.  This is a tree based structure with nodes capable of vision picks, inspection, force/contact sensing, error handling and much more.  Sawyer can also be run in SDK mode as a genuine ROS system (Kinetic).  Rethink’s commitment to making Sawyer collaborative means his Joints are uniquely constructed and contain springs.  I will be discussing what we have learned over the last few months programming Sawyer for various applications.  I will also go a bit into some of the ROS packages found in the SDK mode.  My company is currently in the process of bringing Sawyer to various local manufacturers under both rental and purchasing agreements.  I or Tom Szambelan, who is investing in these and will be in attendance, would be happy to answer questions about the business side of things if anyone is interested. This is a Youtube video to wet your appetite https://youtu.be/g8NWFLHCebo. Brendan Ball is an Engineer with Cobot Team LLC. (Employers Overload), based in Wilsonville, OR.  He recently completed his MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Portland State University, where he focused on Embedded Systems and Robotics.  His thesis work was in Machine Learning and centered around Functional Decomposition and Unsupervised Clustering.

Abstract:
MARCH ORCNET MEETING
Meeting date Tuesday, Mar 5th, 2019.

What can a positive culture mean to your company, your customers and your people.

Every organization or company has a culture. It may have been built intentional, or it may have developed in its own course. Either way, it is defined by the norms, values, actions and reactions of the people of the company. It determines how the people in the organization interact with each other, with customer, suppliers and other stakeholders, and drives decision making. It has been said that culture is what people do when the boss is not watching.

Mike Wright was an engineer by education. After service in the Army, he worked for 15 years as an engineer, systems analyst and project manager. He then worked as a controller and general manager before staring a software business in the mid-nineties. After selling the business he has been working with small business owners to achieve the full potential of their businesses.

As he discusses in his book “Building a Culture of Responsibility” Mike has observed that the most lasting successes have come from the development of positive cultures in the companies and organizations.

Mike will discuss how you can get started on a path that can make you, your companies, your customers and all the people more successful and satisfied.

We will discuss the behavioral signs of negative and positive cultures that will surely shape the future of the company, one way or the other.

Abstract:

IEEE SSCS Oregon Chapter February Meeting and Seminar

This is the first meeting of 2019 and we will kick things off with a talk from SSCS Distinguished Lecturer from Prof. Arun Natarajan of Oregon State University on Wednesday, February 27.  Food and drinks will be provided during the networking event from 6:30 to 7:00pm.  The seminar will be from 7:00pm to 8:00pm and we will continue with networking until 8:30pm.

 

Abstract:

Achieving battery less sensors/wireless transceivers that can sense, compute and communicate enables a wide range of ubiquitous internet-of-things applications. RF-powering presents a robust, reliable approach for providing energy to such battery-less sensors. In this talk, I will focus on the key technical challenges for achieving wirelessly-powered sensors for representative IoT applications. Following an introduction to far-field wireless powering, I will present architectures and circuits with a focus on increasing wireless powering range and energy harvesting efficiency at the system level. Packaging and sensor size are also critical constraints for such systems and we will discuss how constraints on volume and weight impact circuits and architectures. We will discuss performance in the context of state-of-the-art and outline future research to further enable ubiquitous RF-powered sensing and communication.

Speaker Biography:

Dr. Natarajan's research is focused on RF and mm-wave integrated circuits and systems for wireless communication and imaging. He received the B.Tech. degree in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, in 2001 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, in 2003 and 2007, respectively. From 2007 to 2012, he was a Research Staff Member at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, NY and worked on mm-wave phased arrays for multi-Gb/s data links and airborne radar and on self-healing circuits for increased yield in sub-micron process technologies. Since joining Oregon State University, his research group has focused on low-power RFICs and RF/mm-wave arrays integrated in CMOS/SiGe BiCMOS. Dr. Natarajan received the DARPA Young Faculty Award in 2017, the National Talent Search Scholarship from the Government of India [1995-2000], the Caltech Atwood Fellowship in 2001, the Analog Devices Outstanding Student IC Designer Award in 2004, and the IBM Research Fellowship in 2005, and serves on the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE ISSCC and IEEE RFIC.

Title:
Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Construction Seminar
Date:
February 26th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Axiom Electronics
Beaverton
Abstract:

Notice the time change. We are meeting Tuesday the 26th.

Ivar Thorson will present a practical guide to using fiberglass cloth, carbon fiber, nomex honeycomb, and foam cores to build extremely lightweight, rigid, and strong robots. Carbon fiber can 10x or 20x stronger than steel by weight, and is a versatile material for making high-performance machines. We will discuss moldless "hot-wire" foam shaping techniques as a quick and easy way of making prototypes with few tools, and also discuss how the modern era of 3D printers has made mold-making for medium-sized composite structures within reach of most hobbyists. The basic theory and rules of thumb will be presented, followed by step-by-step photographs of the construction of a meter-high, dynamically-balancing monopod "kangaroo" robot. Many of the techniques presented are adopted from the innovative work of Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) pioneer, Burt Rutan, who founded Scaled Composites and and won the Ansari X-prize in 2004 for being the first to launch a non-governmental manned spacecraft into space, twice in two weeks
