Leading scientist in teleoperation from South Korea at Innopolis University
A leading scientist in teleoperation from South Korea lectured at Innopolis University. Here he got acquainted with the scientific projects of the Center for Technologies in Robotics and Mechatronics Components, and also gave two lectures.
Telemanipulation of objects is problem number one at present for in modern medical applications (robotic surgery, catheters) modern medicine and industry, including minimally invasive and microsurgery, microelectronics assembly, manipulators control in the space. Currently such tasks are successfully solved using remotely (tele-) controlled robots, but the stability problem of such systems is far from being solved, especially in the case of significant time delays in transmitting information. One of the key methods for such robots controlling is an approach based on ensuring the passivity of the system, according to which the robot should not produce more energy than it received from the operator (human) and the environment. During his lecture, Professor Ryu shared his 20 years of experience in developing the passive remote-control systems for various devices, including industrial and space manipulators, human-robot interfaces and virtual reality applications.
Professor Ryu’s second lecture was devoted to the participation experience of his laboratory in South Korean National Autonomous Vehicle Competitions. Over the last 10 years, his team has been actively involved in such events and has repeatedly become their winner. In 2019, laboratory staff get first place in competitions organized by Hyundai. Professor Ryu spoke about the general format of the competition, the structures of the car sensing and control systems developed by his laboratory, and also described the technical methods and techniques used in these subsystems to solve navigation and control problems.
Dr. Jee-Hwan Ryu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). He received the B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Inha University, South Korea, in 1995, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from KAIST, South Korea, in 1997 and 2002, respectively. From 2002 to 2003, he worked as a Post-doc Researcher in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington, and at the similar time, he was also affiliated with the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics in DLR as a visiting scientist. He joined KAIST in 2019 as an Associate Professor. Prior to that, he was a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at KOREATECH (2005–2019), and a Research Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at KAIST (2003–2005). His research interests include haptics, telerobotics, exoskeletons, and autonomous vehicles. He has received several awards including IEEE Most Active Technical Committee Award as a Co-chair of TC Haptics in 2015, Best poster award in 2010 IEEE Haptic Symposium. He has served as an Associate Editor in IEEE Transactions on Haptics, and since 2017, he has been serving as an Associate Editor-in-chief in World Haptics Conference. He was involved in many international conference organizations, and especially, he has been served as a general chair of AsiaHaptics2018.
