 Even though I feel like I have gotten a lot done, I am realizing that there is still so much to learn in order to solve more difficult problems. Even though I feel like I have gotten a lot done, I am realizing that there is still so much to learn in order to solve more difficult problems.

 +===== Week 8: 07/29/19 - 08/04/19 ======
 +
 +==== 1. Photo of the week ==== 
 +
 +==== 2. New Korean that I met ==== 
 +
 +This last week, I met two new Koreans: Bora and Mingu. ​
 +
 +Bora is Soonghoon'​s (from the hydraulics lab) girlfriend. I had been trying to hang out with them for a while, and we finally got a chance to go out this last Friday. Ook (another lab member), his friend Mingu, and Akshay also came along. We all got along pretty easily - which has often been the case when Akshay and I meet people together (thankfully).  ​

 +==== 3. Cultural Insight ==== 
 +
 +==== 4. Self-Discovery ==== 
 +
 +I am going to miss KAIST. I've learned a lot here about what it means to be a roboticist (more specifically,​ learning how much I don't know). The problems that roboticists tackle are non-trivial,​ and it takes a huge amount of time, effort, and understanding to get past more trivial problems. Being here has helped to foster a greater sense of cooperation between me and Akshay, showing that we can think through problems more efficiently when we can rely on someone else's perspective. ​
 +
 +I am going to miss the lab members here. There is definitely a sense of camaraderie between the HUBOLab members, regardless of whether or not they work directly together. They have welcomed Akshay and me into the lab, even though we hadn't worked with them on any projects.
 +
 +==== 5. Technical Project ==== 
 +
 +This past week I have been helping out Akshay with the object following module for the RB5. 
 +
 +We've noticed significant lag in the communications that weren'​t present with the simple pick and place demo. After digging into the issues, I found that the ROS wrapper is not receiving robot data from the RB5 control box in a timely manner. I am working out these issues (maybe will be fixed up by resolving timing/​threading issues) and will continue digging into it after we return. ​
 +
 +Dr. Jun also requested that I import the RB5 into RVIZ before coming back to Vegas. I just received word from Dr. Bae earlier this week that they have not made a URDF for the RB5, and so I will need to make it. Once I make the URDF, I will need to make a node that posts the RB5 joint data to the URDF topics.
