Robot Manipulation Laboratory

The Robot Manipulation Laboratory is a research laboratory for basic and applied research in robotics and automation. The laboratory is equipped with a multi-robot manipulation system, direct-drive and force control robots, Sun and SGI Graphics workstations, testbeds for sensor and actuator design, and various measurement and software tools.

Several on-going projects in this laboratory are:
Development of a task-level robot hand manipulation system
Robust nonholonomic motion planning
Geometric manipulation theory
Intelligent robot control
