  • Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar

    Wed, Nov 04, 2020 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Nick Gravish, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering University of California, San Diego

    Talk Title: The Hard Parts of Soft Robots

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: The form and shape of modern robots are rapidly changing from rigid, stiff, but precise machines to more compliant, adaptable, but inherently underactuated systems; often called soft robotics. The emergence of soft robots is in part motivated by the need for safe robotic technologies when human interaction is frequent. However, another motivation for designing soft robotic systems is to exploit the compliant mechanics and high degree of freedom of these systems for adaptability, actuation, and sensing. The majority of efforts to build soft robots utilize a standard toolkit of silicone elastomer casting, pneumatic actuation, and stretchable conducting elements. In this talk I will present our efforts to design and build robots capable of compliance control, reconfiguration, and adaptability using laminate and 3D printing techniques, where "softness" is derived from the configuration of rigid constituent materials. This will focus on three research efforts: compliance control through sliding-layer laminates, insect-inspired 3D printing for "flexoskeleton" robots, and shape changing robot feet for improved mobility of legged robots. While these efforts focus primarily on the mechanical domain of soft robots I will highlight opportunities for sensor and electronics integration through these fabrication approaches.

    Biography: Dr. Nick Gravish received his PhD from Georgia Tech where he worked on understanding the locomotion of ants within their nest. Gravish used robots as physical models to motivate and study aspects of biological locomotion. During his post-doc Gravish worked in the microrobotics lab of Rob Wood at Harvard, where he gained expertise in designing and studying insect-scale robots. Gravish is an assistant professor at UC San Diego in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department. His lab focuses on developing new bio-inspired robotic technologies to improve the adaptability and resilience of mobile robots.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Nov 04, 2020 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Faisal Amlani, USC

    Talk Title: Novel High-Performance Numerical Methods for Problems in Solids, Fluids and Their Interactions: Predictions and Insights into the Underlying Physics

    Abstract: This talk discusses efforts to study wave-like phenomena in realistic applications through the development of new high-order methodologies for the numerical analysis of the partial differential equations (PDEs) that govern both linear and nonlinear behavior. These techniques include new Fourier-based methods in the time-domain as well as adaptive boundary element methods in frequency-space, where the ultimate goal is to provide fast, stable and physically-faithful resolution of the underlying mechanical dynamics. With an eye towards mutual validation of both simulation and experiment, these tools will be demonstrated through some of the collaborative scientific problems that have inspired them, including those in materials science (ultrasonic non-destructive testing), cardiovascular medicine (hemodynamic waves) and geophysics (supershear ruptures and tsunami generation).

    Biography: Faisal Amlani received his BA from Rice University and his PhD from Caltech, both in applied mathematics. His doctoral work was awarded the Caltech W.P. Carey Prize and the Caltech Demetriades Prize for the most outstanding dissertation in mathematics and seismo-engineering, respectively. After some years working as an experimentalist and engineer at an R&D aerospace startup in Los Angeles, he returned to academia by way of France through postdocs at Sorbonne University and the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. He is currently a Postdoctoral Scholar-Research Associate in the Department of Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering at USC.
