Intelligent Robotic Arms (IRA) Lab

Welcome to IRA LAB

Welcome to the Intelligent Robotic Arms (IRA) Lab in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kentucky. Our lab focuses on the studies in kinematically redundant robots, collaborative robots, and human-robot interaction. We develop intelligent and advanced motion planning algorithms to improve the fault-tolerant performance of redundant robots operating in remote and hazardous environments. We also generate safe, efficient, and human-friendly robot motion for collaborative robots in human-robot interaction.
