Our research on collaborative robots and human-friendly robots covers the following areas:
  • Whole robot proximity sensing for collision avoidance
  • Robotic manipulator collision avoidance
  • Mobile robot collision avoidance
  • Hybrid pneumatic-electric actuators for enhanced safety and weight reduction
  • Design of compliant foam coverings for robotic manipulators
  • Markerless human tracking
