THE EVENT

Recent years have seen a large interest in soft robotic systems, which provide new opportunities for machines that are flexible, adaptable, safe, and robust. These systems have been highly successful in a broad range of applications, including manipulation, locomotion, human-robot interaction, and more, but they present challenging design and control problems. In this talk, Penn Engineering Prof. Cynthia Sung will share efforts from her group to expand the capabilities of compliant and origami robots to dynamical tasks. She will show how the compliance of a mechanism can be designed to produce a particular mechanical response, how her group can leverage these designs for better performance and simpler control, and how they approach these problems computationally to design new compliant robots with new capabilities such as hopping, swimming, and flight.

近年来,具备柔性、适应性、安全性和韧性的软体机器人发展势头迅猛,带来了很多新机遇。这些机器人技术在广泛领域体现了成功的应用价值,诸如操控、移动、人机互动等。技术挑战在于设计和控制系统。

本次活动邀请了宾大工程学院Cynthia Sung教授为大家生动展示她的科研团队如何扩大顺应性动力机器人完成多重任务的能力、机器人如何回应、如何简化控制以达到机器人更好的表现并使其获取新的技能诸如跳跃、游泳和飞行。

本次在线讲座为2022宾大工程学院研究新领域在线讲座系列第二期。

THE SPEAKER

Cynthia Sung

Gabel Family Term Assistant Professor, the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM), Penn Engineering, University of Pennsylvania

Cynthia Sung is the Gabel Family Term Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM) and a member of the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing & Perception (GRASP) lab at the University of Pennsylvania. She received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2016 and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Rice University in 2011. Her research interests are computational methods for design automation of robotic systems, with a particular focus on origami-inspired and compliant robots. She is the recipient of a 2021 ICRA best paper in mechanisms and design, a 2020 Johnson & Johnson Women in STEM2D Scholars Award, 2019 NSF CAREER award, and a 2017 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award.
