The research projects that the group is currently working on is summarized in the following figure and are broken into a few categories and can be found in the subsequent links.
Micromanipulation and field applications traditionally do not go hand-in-hand. The following projects illustrate how precision can be brought to the field.
- Real-time jitter compensation and tracking of distant target
- Design of a low-cost and portable robotic vision-guided platform for plant cell manipulation
- Tremor Compensation Device for Retinal Eye Microsurgery (Previous work)
In the field of human-robot interaction, the group is specifically interested in: 1) physical human-robot-environment interaction; 2) sensing of human’s physiological status ; and 3) interface design.
- Assisted medical robot with involuntary motion (both surgeon and patient) removal for ultrasound-guided kidney stone surgery
- Kyanite – Improved Cognition by Design
- Design of Human-Machine interfaces for users inside moving vehicles to control unmanned vehicles
- Infrastructureless in-door localization
- Physical sensor attack
- Orientation & angular velocity estimation in monocopter
- Algorithm for compliant mechanism design
