I have retired from teaching, but still doing research. I am working on three project currently:
- Flying Underground - autonomous UAV flight in an underground mine. (Andrew Petruska, co-PI, Rahul Dev Appapogu & Mark Leska RAs)
- Online Automated Weld Quality Assessment Using Machine Learning (Adewole Ayoade, PhD student).
- Development of Water Jet for Bridge Deck Repair. (Hugh Miller PI), (Erik Charrier & Josef Bourgeois RAs)
Here are a couple of the course my colleagues now teach:
- Introduction to Robotics (MEGN 441)
- Now being taught by Prof Xiaoli Zhang
- Robot Mechanics: Kinematics, Dynamics & Control (MEGN 544)
- Now taught by Prof Andrew Petruska
- Advanced Robot Control (MEGN 545)
- Now taught by Prof Xiaoli Zhang
