Research:

Advanced Robotics and Mechatronics (ARM) Lab works on robotics and mechatronics, high performance parallel robotic machine development, micro/nano manipulation and MEMS devices, rehabilitation robot and rescue robot, parallel robot machine, reconfigurable robot manufacturing system, high-performance robots related novel cross-research area and its applications such as application of the excellent features of the parallel robot to sensors, Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and bionic mine rescue robots. The sensor has been well applied to underwater robots and athletes’ shot put. The lab’s currently projects work on exoskeleton robots, rehabilitation robots, control of high-performance parallel robotic, unmanned aerial vehicles and novel applications of robotic systems.
