Robotics and Embedded Systems
Robots are intelligent electrical-mechanical devices that can sense, think, actuate and interact with humans. Their motion behavior can be influenced by the programmed task as well as by the environment in which they operate. An embedded system is a set of computer controlled devices that make products work while remaining mostly invisible to the users of the products. The research in robotics and embedded systems impacts a broad spectrum of applications, including assistance, training and rehabilitation, education, environmental monitoring and cleanup, emergency response, homeland security, military, and entertainment.
At Oklahoma State University, both Robotics and Embedded Systems primarily focuses on the science and technology of effective, robust, and scalable robotic systems, with broad and far-reaching applications. Many of the elements created with this research span interdisciplinary interactions and collaboration through its robotics faculty and its large team of interdisciplinary affiliates. Robotics and Embedded systems research span the areas of service, humanoid, distributed, reconfigurable, space, and nano robotics and impact a broad spectrum of applications, including assistance, training and rehabilitation, education, environmental monitoring and cleanup, emergency response, homeland security, and entertainment.
More specific research topics include, but are not limited to, algorithms (e.g., for collision avoidance and path planning), computer architecture for embedded systems, graphics and simulation using the latest rendering devices, motor control, machine learning, natural and spoken language, robot programming languages and controllers up to synthetic biology, statistical algorithms for computer vision.
