  • Nao robot walking module and a specialized QP solver implemented during my work on my MS thesis are described in detail on a separate page.

  • HUMOTO : optimization framework for robot control. I've been working on this project during my employment as a research engineer at INRIA, France.

  • qpmad : Eigen-based, header-only QP solver for embedded optimization in robot control.

  • ariles : C++ metaprogramming library with focus on serialization and configuration (YAML, ROS parameter server, XML, etc).
