Welcome to the webpage of the Laboratory for Control, Robotics and Automation. Currently our research is in two main areas of Automotive, and human arm neuromechanics and rehabilitation. We are using control engineering techniques for developing methods to be used in autonomous vehicles. We are studying various challenges in the area of autonomous vehicles such as lane changing, detection of unintended acceleration and development of high level controls for high way driving. In the area of neuromechanics and rehabilitation, we aim to apply control and robotics techniques to understand the underlying principles of the human central nervous system, analyze human upper limb bio-mechanics and develop assistive upperlimb rehabilitation devices. Both areas of research in our lab are of high importance and have broad impact on society.
