One paper accepted to ICRA 2019

Yuanming's latest paper ChainQueen was accepted to ICRA 2019. In this paper, he presented a differentiable deformable body simulator that opens up lots of possibilities for efficient controller and geometry design algorithms in robotics. Check out this video to see what amazining work can be done using his simulator!
