Robo Designer

Overview

Robo Designer simulates human-robot interaction design in VR. Specifically, it puts robotics researchers into a virtual environment where they can prototype humanoid robot behavior (gestures, movement, etc.) without having to use a real robot. Robo Designer was a summer research project I worked on full time.

Unity Developer/Programmer

C#

Ideated, prototyped & developed the application based on research goals. Aside from becoming proficient with Unity in a professional setting I further improved my C# and documentation skills. Development-wise the main tasks included setting up a VR integration, creating a real-time multiplayer environment and building the application itself (robot control, player transitions, hand/head movement recording, etc.). In addition, I learned how to utilize other creators' assets (models, whiteboard).
