Biography Summary

Jan Huissoon is the Chair of the Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering department as well as a Professor at the University of Waterloo. He founded Canada’s first Mechatronics Engineering program.

Professor Huissoon’s research is based on mechatronic design, sensor based robot control, robotic welding, airborne sonar, and autonomous vehicle control.

His projects include Dynamic Seam Tracking for Robotic Welding, Automatic end-of-arm and tool-centre-point calibration, Autonomous Navigation Using Artificial Neural Networks, Arc Acoustics in GMA welding, Walking Wobot Welder, Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Modeling of Human Locomotion, Integrated Robot Systems, Sensor Based Control, Modelling and Control of Arc Welding Processes, Intelligent Sensing Systems (Ultrasonic, vision), and Autonomous Vehicle Guidance & Control.

In addition, Professor Huissoon is the sole holder of the patent – Method and device for robot tool frame calibration.
