Focus: Design and control of mechatronics systems with a specific focus on how image-based controls can be used. The systems studied in this lab range from the very small (scanning probe microscopes) to more typically sized mechatronic systems (mobile robots).
- Image-based modeling, control and calibration for high speed scanning probe microscopy
- Unmanned vehicle modeling and control using vision-based information
- Piezoelectric actuator vibration suppression
- Microsoft Kinect as a mobile robotics sensor
