PhD Dissertation on Intelligent Collision Management in Dynamic Environments for Human-Centered Robots

This thesis, written by PhD student Kwan Suk Kim posits that no matter how hard we try, collisions will always happen, and therefore we need to confront and study them both during autonomous navigation or dexterous manipulation. Chapter 5 connects

Paper on Liquid Cooled Viscoelastic Robotic Systems

Liquid Cooled Viscoelastic actuators are aimed at fielding human-centered lightweight robot structures with high payload capabilities and high mechanical robustness.┬áThis technology excels at the following five axes: energy efficiency, torque density, mechanical robustness, position and force controllability.
