Teaching and Research Areas

Control theory and its applications to transfer systems, industrial robots and medical and welfare systems.

Projects with Quanser’s Product

Development of control system for welfare robots and medical systems.

Advantages of Quanser’s Product

It is very easy to start experiments with high specs. Therefore, we can avoid many troublesome works. For this reason, Quanser’s products are very effective for us.

Using the Quanser software, we can easily design control systems for many plants.

We can apply complex control strategies quickly and effectively.

It is very easy to verify the theoretical results on the real plant.
