Systems, Controls, and Robotics Group

Our group conducts research on topics in control theory and algorithms, design and optimization for biologically-based robotics, haptics, autonomous mobile robotics, surgical robot technology, control engineering for rehabilitation, closed-loop drug delivery, control of jump parameter systems, intelligent transportation systems, and genome automation. Presently, there are 11 active Robotics and Controls faculty, and several emeritus faculty in a UW Robotics, Controls, and Mechatronics (RCM) effort, which includes faculty primarily from Electrical Engineering, Aeronautics and Astronautics and Mechanical Engineering as well as participation with Chemical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Applied Mathematics.

Course listings, faculty descriptions, seminar announcement and other information is available at the RCM website. EE students working on RCM topics may have primary research advisors chosen from RCM faculty in any of the participating departments.
