AIO for April 1, 2015

Last week's accomplishments

This covers the last two weeks March 16-29.

Perturbed Data Paper

  • [2 hr, Done 5] Adjust paper to better delineate the pilot trials from finalized protocol trials.
  • [2 hr, Done 4] Fix Ton's other comments
  • [1 hr, Done 0.5 hr] Submit our second version to PeerJ by Tuesday.
  • [Done 1.2 hr] Phone call with Ton.
  • [Done 1.1 hr] Address copy editor's comments.
  • [Done 5.7 hr] Fix Windows build instructions and test on Windows.

Quiet Standing Control Identification Paper

  • [4 hr, Done 14 hr] Create a super simple closed loop id that demonstrates the systematic error due to id model deficiencies (i.e. missing process noise).

Gait Control Direct ID Paper

  • [10 hr, Some done 1.5 hr] Get all of the basic plots in place in the paper.
  • [Done 19.4 hr] Increased the speed of the inverse dynamics about 1000X. Data processing went from 5-6 minutes a trial to less than a second. Setup unit tests for the inverse dynamics.

Yeadon Software Paper

  • [Done 1 hr] Reviewed the proof.

Zhoadan Collaboration

  • [2 hr, Done 1.6 hr] Review Google Research grant reqs and intro materials.
  • [2 hr, Done 1 hr] Meet with Zhoadan on Friday.

SciPy

  • [Partially done 0.2 hr] Maybe submit a SymPy tutorial in addition to the PyDy one.

Last week's issues

Quiet Standing Control Identification Paper

Didn't get to these:

  • [1 hr] Change the acceleration input to have a flat spectrum.
  • [4 hr] Try using the linear plant model and see if what happens to the indirect id bias.
  • [2 hr] Create plot of relative error vs dc step size.

Gait Control Direct ID Paper

Didn't get to this:

  • [5 hr] Flesh out the results writing more for a first draft.

Yeadon Software Paper

  • [0.5 hr] Paste in the reviewer responses into the commenting section on the journal website.
    • Waiting on Chris to submit the proof review.
