ECE Robotics Laboratory
ENGINEERING I BUILDING, RM 364
The Robotics Lab aims at developing optimization and control algorithms, software and hardware that enables autonomy of unmanned (aerial, ground, surface and underwater) vehicles, energy harvesting from ocean waves, manufacturing automation, space robotics, and other robotic applications.
ECE Systems & Control Laboratory
Harris Engineering Center (HEC), RM 434
The Systems & Control Laboratory is to develop new systematic analysis/design tools and optimization/control algorithms that achieve autonomy, guaranteed performance and intelligence for cyber-physical systems. The systems under consideration are networked systems whose dynamics are complex and uncertain, whose interactions are local and intermittent as well as may be competitive, and whose operational condition and environment are highly unpredictable and changing. The specific applications include swarms of robots, tele-operation of medical robots, autonomous operation of UAVs, cooperative guidance of munitions, control of biomedical devices and systems, distributed renewable generation and smart grid. By working with industry and governmental agencies, we aim to address these comtemporary technical challenges in the fields of cyber-physical systems and networked controls.
UCF Medical Robotics Laboratory
Harris Engineering Center (HEC), RM 263
The Medical Robotics Laboratory is to bring together a team of faculty from UCF and local hospitals, to educate our students the state-of-art techniques in medical robotic surgery, and to conduct multidisciplinary research in tele-surgery, mixed and augmented virtual reality, surgical simulation and rehearsal, virtual mentoring, and other technologies of medical robotics.
UCF Power Systems Laboratory
Harris Engineering Center (HEC), RM 302
The Power Systems Laboratory is to provide the basic infrastructure for UCF students and faculty to conduct research in such areas as high-penetration renewable integration, distributed control and optimization, resilience and restoration of power systems, and secure CPS. Our educational and research activities include close collaborations with utilities (Duke Energy, OUC, etc), industry (Siemens, GE, TI, etc) and national labs (NREL and LANL).
