LCSR Seminar: Eric Diller “Micro-Scale Surgery: Using Magnetic Fields to Control Tiny Robots in the Gut and Brain”

Eric Diller, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Robotics Institute, Institute of Biomedical Engineering (cross-appointed); University of Toronto

LCSR Seminar: Hunter Gilbert “Continuum Robots: Addressing Challenges through Modeling, Design, and Control”

Continuum robots change their shape with elastic deformations rather than mechanical joints and are often elastically deform under typical forces for their applications. They have advantages in some environments where geometry may be complex and not well-known in advance of operations, which is a common feature of many applications outside of factory settings. Continuum robots leverage contact and deformation to complete tasks, relying on passive mechanical behaviors in addition to software-based intelligence and traditional control systems.

LCSR Seminar: Heather Culbertson “Using Data for Increased Realism with Haptic Modeling and Devices”

Abstract: The haptic (touch) sensations felt when interacting with the physical world create a rich and varied impression of objects and their environment. Humans can discover a significant amount of information through touch with their environment, allowing them to assess object properties and qualities, dexterously handle objects, and communicate social cues and emotions. Humans are spending significantly more time in the digital world, however, and are increasingly interacting with people and objects through a digital medium.
