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 on in-hand manipulation, robot locomotion on yielding ground, and human-robot systems.
Kevin Lynch received the B.S.E. degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University and the Ph.D. degree in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University. He is currently a professor of mechanical engineering at Northwestern University and the director of the Center for Robotics and Biosystems. 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.
