The talk begins with an introduction to the University of British Columbia (UBC). Next several projects of research and development, which have been successfully carried out at the Industrial Automation Laboratory of UBC under the directorship of the speaker are outlined. The activities of the laboratory typically involve robotics, Mechatronics, modeling, design, control, sensing, actuation, and instrumentation. Many of the projects involve industrial collaboration. A partial list of projects is given below. The talk discusses several key projects among theses.
1. Automation of fish processing
2.Automation of herring roe grading
3. Marking of live fish for fishery management
4. Router machine with impedance control
5. Space robotics (design and development of multi-module, deployable manipulators)
6. Multi-robot cooperation with practical applications
7. Robotic teleoperation with practical applications
8. Machine health monitoring, fault prediction, detection, and diagnosis
9. Automated design evolution of mechatronic systems
10.Integrated and unified modeling of mechatronic systems
12.Sensor jacket for telemedicine
13.Mobile sensing robots for automated water quality monitoring
14.Comprehensive sleep monitoring in a familiar home environment
15.Robotic monitoring of pipelines carrying fuel oil.
