Research Area / Fields

  1. Robot vehicles: navigating an experimental mobile robot to a goal while avoiding collision with obstacles, while information is gathered on-line using sensors.
  2. “Walking” robots: planning motion of articulated mechanisms like “snake” and “spider” robots through a sequence of stable equilibria.
  3. Robot juggling.
  4. Workpiece fixturing.
  5. Assembly planning.
