Professor, University Research Chair, and RoboHub Director

Professor William MelekProfessor William Melek is the RoboHub Director, a University Research Chair, and leads the Laboratory of Computational Intelligence and Automation. He is an expert on robotics, artificial intelligence, sensing, and state estimation.

At the RoboHub, Professor Melek leads research in the areas of motion sensing, perception, and intelligent control. This includes state estimation algorithms that are critical to coordinated control systems for autonomous ground vehicles and humanoid systems. In collaboration with Professor Khamesee, he is also developing intelligent algorithms for reconfiguring magnetically-levitated robot formations for manufacturing and to facilitate interaction with other robotic setups. The RoboHub is significantly advancing Professor Melek’s research in flexible robotic systems and precision control of manipulators, providing a unique collaborative opportunity to study heterogeneous robotic teams.

See Professor Melek's department profile for more details about his work outside of the RoboHub.
