Date & Time:8 Sep 2011 (Thursday) 15:00 - 17:00
Organized by:Department of Electromechanical Engineering


The analysis, simulation, and control of kinematically redundant robotic systems will be presented. How kinematic redundancy can be utilized to design failure tolerant robotic systems for remote operations will be introduced. Recent works in the world will be surveyed as well.


Anthony A. Maciejewski received the B.S.E.E (summa cum laude), M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1982, 1984, and 1987, respectively, all from The Ohio State University. In 1988, Prof. Maciejewski joined the faculty of Purdue University as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1993 and Full Professor in 1998. In August of 2001 he joined Colorado State University where he is currently a Professor and Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Prof. Maciejewski has served on the editorial boards for the IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation; IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (Part A); Intelligent Automation and Soft Computing; Pattern Analysis and Applications; Journal of Robotics; Journal of Automation and Mobile Robotics; International Journal of Robotics and Automation and was co-guest editor for a special issue on Kinematically Redundant Robots for the Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers "for contributions to the design and control of kinematically redundant robots," and has served as the VP for Financial Activities, AdCom member and Secretary for its Robotics and Automation Society.
