The Laboratory of Motion Generation and Analysis (LMGA)

The Laboratory of Motion Generation and Analysis (LMGA) is directed by Dr Chen. We are interested in innovative motion generation for versatile edge-cutting applications, and conducting fundamental researches on motion analysis. Our research activities include reconfigurable robotic arms, robotic surgery, path planning, haptic devices, hybrid electric vehicles, humanoid robots, and fundamental theories of spatial motion. The research team is consisted of research assistants, post-graduates, visiting scholars and HDR students, and distinct undergraduates. Our goal is to benefit communities by means of engineering advances. If interested, you are welcome to contact me for more information.
