We are actively engaged in research and development in Mechatronics. The references below summarize many of our published works and presentations in the area of Mechatronics.
We regularly carry out research projects with local industry, and involve undergraduate and graduate students in these projects through contract research, senior design projects, Master's projects, directed study, and coursework. If you are interested in sponsoring or participating in mechatronics research with us, please contact Prof. Buff Furman.
Some Current Projects:
- Low-Cost Profiler M. Kearny, K. Batson, Advisor: BJ Furman
- Linear Encoder Interface for an Inkjet Printer P. Earley, Advisor: BJ Furman
- Load Port Micro-Stocker M. Campello, D. Wong, M. Mohr, M. McFaddin, Advisor: BJ Furman
- Fuzzy Logic and Neural Networks in Control Applications Advisor: JC Wang
