Enabling Technologies for More Accurate, Less Invasive Robotic Surgery
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-09-05)
This seminar will focus on recent results from the Vanderbilt Medical & Electromechanical Design Laboratory on concentric tube robots, capsule endoscopy, and robotic cochlear implant surgery, together with a brief discussion ...
Transformations and Frontiers in Robot Motion and Manipulation
Robotics is undergoing three transformations, which are changing our research focus and opening doors to new applications. The need for robotic manipulation in unstructured environments, human-robot collaborative systems, ...
Computational Modeling and Enhancement of Human Skill
With the rapidly growing popularity of the Intuitive Surgical da Vinci system, robotic minimally invasive surgery (RMIS) has crossed the threshold from the laboratory to the real world. There are now hundreds of thousands ...
Mobile Data Collection in an Aquatic Environment: Cyber Maritime Cycles for Distributed Autonomy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-03-06)
There is a perceivable trend for robots to serve as networked mobile sensing platforms that are able to collect data in aquatic environments in unprecedented ways. We argue that the effective transformation between Eulerian ...
The Robotic Scientist: Automating Discovery, from Cognitive Robotics to Computational Biology
Can robots discover scientific laws automatically? Despite the prevalence of computing power, the process of finding natural laws and their corresponding equations has resisted automation. This talk will outline a series ...
Towards Visual Route Following for Mobile Robots…Forever!
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-03-20)
In this talk I will describe a particular approach to visual route following for mobile robots that we have developed, called Visual Teach & Repeat (VT&R), and what I think the next steps are to make this system usable in ...
Mixed-Integer Convex Formulations for Planning Nonlinear Dynamics in Complex Environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-10-19)
Humanoid robots walking across intermittent terrain, robotic arms grasping multifaceted objects, or UAVs darting left or right around a tree — many of the dynamics and control problems we face today have an inherently ...
Future of Autonomous Vehicles
Delivering the Benefits of Self-Driving Technology Safely, Quickly, and Broadly
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-11-07)
We are in a new era of mobility. Synergistic changes within the automotive industry are occurring simultaneously that have the potential to reduce important social costs: electric cars, ride sharing, and self-driving ...
