Research interests:
Robotics and Intelligent Systems

  • Large-scale autonomous systems: optimization and control of multi-agent robotic systems, coordinated motion planning of dynamical systems including manipulators and mobile robots
  • Human-Robot Cooperation: human safety and comfort in human-robot shared workspaces, learning and cognitive control of service robots, human-robot swarm cooperation
  • Wireless Mobile Sensor Networks: co-optimization (communication-aware and mobility aware) of communication capacity, throughput, and delay in dynamic environments
  • Bio-inspired robotics: swarm robotics, hierarchical robotic systems, collective decision making, swarm intelligence
  • Modern artificial intelligence: intelligent building blocks, (self)-reconfigurable robots, tangible games, robotic arts
  • Ambient intelligence: modular sensor networks, intelligent devices for interactive spaces, IoT applications.
  • Embedded systems (biased to robotic principles): hw/sw co-design, implant healthcare devices
  • Problem-Based Learning: Intercultural Problem-based Learning (PBL), PBL in engineering
