Description

I created an extension of the end user logging service in AWS S3 that recovers user logs from downed webservers. This equates to 100-1000s of logs delivered succesfully to the customers that where previously deleted.

My Role

I wrote the code, designed the modification, and saw it too completion.

Any user of Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service who uses logging in their bucket will see the effects of this code.

Description

In this project I explored a new way to implement sorting algorithms using vector instructions, specifically the Intel AVX2 instruction set. Conventional implementations use the classical Batcher's algorithm. This approach adds significant overhead. I eliminated this overhead.

My Role

I worked on a team with one other undergrad and a professor on this project. Most code was implemented by myself then compared and deliberated with the rest of the team.

This project will be avaliable after publication in Fall 2017. Please contact me for more information on this project.

Description

Robojackets is the main Georgia Tech robotics club. I worked on the roboracing team. Our goal was to create an autonomous robot that would both race around a race track and race in a drag race. The robot used both a camera, LIDAR, and other sensors to gather information. The robot ran on an NVIDIA Jetson running ROS (Robot Operating System).

My Role

I worked on the programming team and was primarily in charge of two algorithms. One involved an algorithm that used the camera to do a computer vision algorithm in order to watch the stop light that starts the race. The other algorithm I worked on was another computer vision algorithm that detected whether the robot had crossed the finish line.
