The objectives of our research work on robotics are
(1) to develop intelligent sensor-based robotic system for material handling and assembly applications, and
(2) to develop sensor integrated multi-finger robot grippers for applications in manufacturing.
Industrial robots will be equipped with tactile and non-tactile sensors and AI-based collision detection algorithms will be developed for obstacle avoidance.
Vision sensing will be developed to position the robot manipulator and gripper coupled with tactile sensing based on force/torque sensors to guide the robot during assembly.
Further, multi-finger robot grippers will be developed with various types of tactile and non-tactile sensors to augment their sensory capabilities and provide guidance in grasping and manipulation.
