Research Specializations

Dr. Henry Medeiros

Robotic vision and vision for autonomous vehicles

Dr. Joseph Schimmels

Intelligent design of multi-dimensional mechanical behavior (kinematics and admittance/impedance) for application in physically interacting systems. Current applications include: robotics (e.g., force-guided assembly, grasping), prosthetics (bionic joints), manufacturing (e.g., fixturing, material removal), and vibration isolation (e.g., vehicle/seat suspension design)

Dr. Philip Voglewede

Theoretical kinematics applied to robotics and prostheses and general area of dynamics and controls
