We (Twan and Robin) are graduate students in the Robot Locomotion Group at MIT. Our research focuses on modeling and optimization for the simulation and control of walking (and sometimes flying) robots. We've been using Julia in our research over the past year, and we're excited to share what we've learned, what we've built, and what we're hoping to see in the future of Julia., we'd like to share some of our work on: Robot dynamics and simulation in Julia: https://github.com/tkoolen/RigidBodyDynamics.jl 3D visualization and manipulation of robot models from Julia: https://github.com/rdeits/RigidBodyTreeInspector.jl https://github.com/rdeits/DrakeVisualizer.jl Optimization in Julia: https://github.com/rdeits/NNLS.jl Collision algorithms in Julia: https://github.com/rdeits/EnhancedGJK.jl https://github.com/rdeits/AdaptiveDistanceFields.jlwould also like to talk about how some of the best parts of the Julia ecosystem have made our work possible, like JuMP.jl, ForwardDiff.jl, and StaticArrays.jl., finally, we plan to discuss what we hope to see in Julia's future, including what the role of Julia can be inside a real-time robot controller.

I'm a graduate student in the Robot Locomotion Group at MIT, working on simulation, planning, and control of walking and flying robots. I'm particularly interested in footstep planning, push-recovery for bipeds, and applications of learning to robotics.
