Research Cluster Meetings

We have 6 focus areas: Hands, Sensing, Haptics, Needle, Perching, Adhesion. Assume one hour "group" time plus 1 hour on either side for a total of up to 4 individual half hour research status meetings = 3 hour blocks for Mark. Can people identified in the email please coordinate on a mutually agreeable time and fill in below? The following blocks of time are available:

Monday 9:00-12:00 - Hands (cluster meeting at 11)

  • 9:15 Dan Aukes
  • 10:30 Paul Karplus

Monday 3:00-6:00 (cluster meeting at 2 or 3 or 4?) 2pm has biweekly adhesion Telecon with JPL, so perhaps this is a good block for adhesion stuff? Eric has class 4:15, Dave (and maybe Elliot) at 5:15.

Wednesday 2:00-6:00 - Haptic Cluster (cluster meeting at 3 or 4)

  • 3:30 Chris
  • 4:00 Haptic Cluster
  • 5:00 Wisit

Thursday 9:00-12:00 - Needle Cluster(cluster meeting at 10)

  • 10:00 Needle Cluster
  • 10:30 Santhi

Friday 9:00-12:00 (cluster meeting at 10:30?) - Tentative skin/tactile sensing time.

  • 9:00 ???
  • 9:30 ???
  • 10:00 Barrett
  • 10:30 Alice
  • 11:00 Sensing Cluster

Friday 2:00-6:00 (cluster meeting at 3 or 4) - This time currently overlaps KAUST so may be ideal to put hands here?

  • 2:00 Morgan ?
