Lv at the robot lab

?

Lv found her interest in robot research in the summer before the Sophomore Year when she joined the Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing of the University. “I was a little confused from the beginning, and later I slowly discovered that researching robots can bring great fun to myself.” During that summer, Lv gained professional knowledge in the laboratory and learned to be highly focused. During the cooperation, she learned a lot from the seniors and gained valuable friendship there.

The report of the UPSIDE-DOWN team of Lv and her teammates

? ? ? ?

She said: "My experimental team is called UPSIDE-DOWN. This is to remind myself not to connect the wrong positive and negative poles of the power supply. In the course of the competition, we have met a lot of unexpected situations and even stayed up till 4 o'clock in the morning to test the equipment and procedures. But everyone still persisted and successfully completed the project.” In the competition, the UPSIDE-DOWN team not only completed all the established tasks, but also combined artificial intelligence (AI) to realize the automatic driving of the sailboat, simulating the scene of the game, and carrying out several rounds of man-machine competition with the hybrid sailing boat. In the end, the UPSIDE-DOWN team won the championship with their wind-driven sailing boat project and won the Best Team Award.
