Marine Lab (C00058)
40 Minutes, including Q&A sessions.
In this lab tour, we will showcase and demonstrate our ongoing marine robotics projects, such as: MBZIRC 23 Challenge, Aquaculture and Coral Reef assessment, and Underwater Swarm Robotics. These projects focus on developing marine robotics technologies, control algorithms, and vision-based methods for carrying out various application-driven marine inspection and monitoring tasks both individually and in a collaborative manner. This lab tour will allow the audience to interact with the team members and learn more about each listed project.
Agri Robotics Lab (L01029)
20 Minutes, including Q&A sessions.
In this lab tour, we will showcase and demonstrate our ongoing work on implementing tomato maturity classification through artificial intelligence and its integration into the robotic system represents a transformative leap in agricultural technology. We will also show case the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) for tomato leaf disease identification signifies a progressive paradigm within agricultural research.
Industrial Robotics Lab (L01029)
30 mins, including Q&A sessions.
This lab tour involves an overview of the research work surrounding on compliant/soft manipulation and sensing. Our efforts have resulted in the development and refinement of diverse soft robots and compliant actuation systems, custom-tailored for applications spanning industrial and marine robotics. Notably, our actuation innovations include variable stiffness actuators, tendon-driven designs, and inventive mechanisms based on twisted strings and the finray effect. These compliant/soft actuation technologies have been implemented in robotic arms, and soft robotic grippers for various medical, industrial and underwater applications.
Advanced Manufacturing Lab (G0002)
Our lab focuses on the development of novel platforms based on parallel and hybrid serial-parallel kinematics for manufacturing, construction, and maintenance applications. Several platforms we have been developing include:
Our projects have a vision of developing local technologies that are built in-house from scratch, contributing to the in-country value program and “Make It in the UAE” program, and leveraging some of our projects to higher TRL and commercialization.
Autonomous Vehicle Lab (AVLab)
30 Minutes, including interactive sessions.
Join us for an engaging tour of the AVLab, where we focus on advancements in autonomous vehicle technologies. In this visit, you will witness the ongoing work our team is doing in areas such as prediction, planning, and control systems for autonomous vehicles. We will share insights and experiences from our recent participation in the RTA competition, where our team proudly secured the second position. Additionally, visitors will get an up-close look at the EZMile AV platform, the core of our efforts in developing a comprehensive autonomous driving software stack. This tour offers a unique opportunity to engage with our experts and gain insights into the future of autonomous vehicle technology.
