GRASP on Robotics: Kevin Lynch, Northwestern University, “Robot manipulation research in the Center for Robotics and Biosystems”
April 1 at 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM
*This seminar will be held in-person in Wu and Chen Auditorium as well as virtually via Zoom.
Research at the Center for Robotics and Biosystems at Northwestern University encompasses bio-inspiration, neuromechanics, human-machine systems, and swarm robotics, among other topics. In this talk I will give an overview of some of our recent work, with a particular focus on autonomous in-hand manipulation and human-robot collaborative manipulation with teams of mobile cobots.
Kevin Lynch is a professor of mechanical engineering and director of the Center for Robotics and Biosystems at Northwestern University. His research is on robotic manipulation, locomotion, human-robot systems, and robot swarms. He is Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Robotics, a coauthor of three textbooks on robotics and mechatronics, and the instructor of six Coursera online courses forming the Modern Robotics specialization. He received the B.S.E. degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University and the Ph.D. degree in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University.
