I am pleased to report that a paperback version my book Introduction to Theoretical Kinematics: the mathematics of movement is on-line with Amazon.com. I have updated it to reflect current terminology in Robotics and to correct all of the errors that I could identify. Please select the link Introduction to Theoretical Kinematics.
On May 8, 2018, I was pleased to give a seminar at the University of Pennsylvania GRASPLab: McCarthy Seminar.
They also videotaped my lecture. Here it is:
This video captures the first autocross run by Matt Clark at the 2018 FSAE Lincoln competition. If I remember correctly is was 62.7sec, just behind their earlier 61.9sec run. Matt’s second run, the final of four runs, was anticipated to be even better but there was a problem with the car.
This view of the course, driver, and front wheels is excellent for understanding the challenges of this competition.
