Home My research interests include visually servoed robotics, robot hands, sensor fusion, and control
Course system design. My multi-disciplined background is in mechanical, electrical and
Projects computer engineering.
Columbia University Robotics Lab (1995-1999)
The Columbia University Robotics Group is where I pursued
visual servoing and grasping research. Adaptive control of a stewart platform was performed at Seoul
National University's Fluid Applications and Production Automation lab. Brief summaries, papers and MPEG video
clips can be viewed through my member page at
Papers can also viewed from my Drexel site, under the Publications hyperlink above.

The PRISM Lab: Program for Robotics,
Intelligent Sensing and Mechatronics at Drexel University.
PRISM's working mission statement is to conceive, develop, implement and configure
sensor-based solutions and "smart" mechatronic systems for robotics and human
augmented applications. NOTE: PRISM's web page http://prism.mem.drexel.edu

Aerial Robotics for Near-Earth Environments
Near-Earth environments include areas like forests, buildings,
tunnels and caves. For an aerial robot to autonomously fly in such environments
demands sensor suites for collision avoidance and target localization. We have
recently demonstrated autonomous landing and collision avoidance inside
a building using a 5-gram optic flow sensor.

avoid collision. Right: The vehicle autonomously lands.
