My research interest in robotics is the use of abstractions and modeling in robot middleware. I work primarily on RDIS which is a domain model for defining the mappings between robot software frameworks to robot device messages. The motivation is to create a one-time description for robots that can be plugged into any robot framework. As well, it can serve as a standards specification for the interface between robot software frameworks and devices.
