Machine-Intelligence Laboratory

The Machine-Intelligence Laboratory is a research laboratory for basic and applied research in manufacturing, motor control and intelligent systems. The laboratory is equipped with a 3-axis milling machine, a CNC lathe, a CNC EDM machine, home-built open-architecture controllers for machine tools, transporting robots, Sun and SGI Graphics workstations, testbeds for induction motor control, and various sensors, measurement tools and CAD/CAM software.

Several on-going projects in this laboratory are:
Development of open-architecture controllers for machine tools;
Vector control for AC induction motors;
CAD/CAM integration; and
Computer-aided setups and on-line quality inspection.
