Robots that physically interact with humans are making their way into many applications like in manufacturing and healthcare. Many parallel robots are favourable candidates that can be used as physical human-robot interaction interfaces since the actuators are mounted on or close to the base, thereby reducing the inertia of the moving parts and ensuring back-drivability.
Dr. Kefei Wen is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Yeungnam University, Korea, in 2012 and 2015, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Université Laval, Canada, in 2020.
