Research at the Maglev Microrobotics Laboratory studies the design and development of magnetically levitated (Maglev) robots.
We are also working on the development and industrialization of various applications of magnetism such as electromagnetic energy harvesters and non-destructive testing for detecting cracks and defects in live pipelines.
The following research projects are conducted at Maglev Microrobotics Lab in the Engineering 5 building, directed by Professor Khamesee. (Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering department)
- Magnetically levitated microrobots
- Five degrees of freedom magnetic actuation
- Magnetic levitation floor (MagFloor)
- Magnetic levitation for additive manufacturing
- Defect detection in additive manufacturing products
- Floating micro-electro-mechanical MEMS systems
- Electromagnetic damper for automotive suspension
- Micro energy harvesters
- Cost effective prosthetic leg
