Robotics @ Purdue

A number of faculty and students in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University are engaged in traditional Robotics and Robotics-inspired Research.  The groups’ research activities comprise all aspects of robotics including development of component technologies (e.g., sensors, actuators, structures, and communication), novel robotic platforms, design, controls, intelligence, advanced manufacturing, mechatronics, and autonomy for robotic systems.

The Robotics group faculty members along with their associated research labs are the following:

  • George Chiu (Spira Lab)
  • Ray Cipra (Spira Lab)
  • Xinyan Deng (Bio-Robotics Lab)
  • Peter Meckl (Spira Lab)
  • Karthik Ramani (C Design Lab)
  • Justin Seipel (Spira Lab)

NEMS/MEMS @ Purdue

Micro and Nanotechnology is a dynamic and expanding research area in the School of Mechanical Engineering, Purdue University. The research activities are built upon traditional mechanical engineering disciplines, but extended into the nanoscale science and technology with the use of modern experimental and computational tools. Current research activities include nanoscale heat transfer, fluidics, manufacturing, optics, nano- and mciro-scale electro-mechanical devices (NEMS and MEMS), with most of the research is conducted at the newly established Birck Nanotechnology Center.  Please visit the Nanotechnology Research website for more information.
