ABSTRACT: The seminar will present an overview my research interests covering modelling, estimation, identification, and control applications in context of robotic and mechatronic systems. I will deliver this seminar in two parts. The first part of the presentation will cover the recent contributions in modelling and control of a linkage chewing robot, the redundantly actuated parallel chewing robot, and a soft surface manipulator. The second part of the presentation will introduce new monitoring and control algorithms developed by us to handle the uncertainty and varying operating conditions encountered commonly in most industrial automation machines.

Keywords: Robotics, Automation, Mechatronics, Control Applications, Signal Processing, Condition Health Monitoring.
