Welcome to the Robotics and Intelligent SystEms Laboratory (RISE) at Arizona State University! We work on design and control of advanced robotic systems, including wearable assistive robots, soft robots, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Our aim is to design novel structures/mechanisms and intelligent learning/control algorithms for robots to safely and efficiently collaborate with human in dynamic tasks. We are part of The Polytechnic School at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. We are affiliated with the ASU Robotics Group and Center for Human, Artificial Intelligence, and Robot Teaming (CHART). The lab is directed by Dr. Wenlong Zhang, an assistant professor of systems engineering at Arizona State University.
Congratulations to the new PhD graduates: Dr. Pham Huy Nguyen and Dr. Saivimal Sridar!June 2020
