SEMINAR: Driven Motion Planning for Unmanned Vehicles

March 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: The ability of unmanned vehicles to plan and execute motions under nominal conditions has been critical to their success over the past decade. However, the ambitious applications envisioned for future vehicles will require an even greater degree of efficiency and autonomy to be achieved by motion planning and control algorithms. Optimal control theory provides a powerful tool to synthesize and study the properties of trajectories for vehicles with nonlinear motion models. The first part of this talk discusses the…

SEMINAR: Planning, control, and decision-making ofagile humanoid robots in complex environments

April 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Our century greatly needs autonomous, agile, and human-centered robots that are able to operate in human-populated environments, maneuver in remote and cluttered environments, take care of our health, and streamline manufacturing and assembly lines. However, computational issues limit robots’ ability to plan complex motions in constrained and contact-rich environments, interact with humans safely, and exploit dynamics to gracefully maneuver, manipulate, fly, or explore the oceans. My talk will discuss new computational approaches necessary to enable agile and human-centered robots…

SEMINAR: On-Chip Materials Processing and Cell Characterization

April 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: Micro/nanoscale technologies are emerging as powerful tools for controlling the interaction between cells and their surroundings for biological studies and biomedical applications. I will discuss two areas of research in our lab. Fibers have been increasingly used in various biomedical applications since they provide cells with a hydrated 3D microenvironment that mimics the native extracellular matrix. We have employed hydrodynamic focusing and solvent extraction to fabricate highly-structured biocompatible and biodegradable polymer microfibers in a microfluidic platform. The microfibers are…
