Current Projects [Past Projects]
 
Architecture for Agile Assembly
Reduction of time to market in agile manufacturing
Constrained Controlled Coverage
Coverage of two dimensional surfaces embedded in three dimensions with emphasis on uniform coverage.
Dynamically-Stable Mobile Robots in Human Environments
We are developing novel dynamically-stable rolling machine and walking machine research platforms to study interactions with people and operating in normal home and workplace environments.
Free-Roaming Planar Motors
We are developing autonomous planar motors for precision positioning.
Psychophysics of Haptic Interaction
Quantitative comparisons of human subjects performing peg-in-hole experiments with real, virtual, and real-remote haptic environments
Robots in Scansorial Environments
We are developing a bioinspired climbing robot with the unique ability to walk on land and climb on vertical surfaces.
Teleoperation with a 12-DOF Coarse-Fine Manipulator
High-fidelity manipulation of remote environments using a 6-DOF robot equipped with a 6-DOF magnetic levitation fine-motion wrist.
The Electric Cable Differential (ECD) Leg
We are designing a bipedal robot to be capable of running, walking, jumping, hopping, and generally behaving in a highly dynamic manner.
