On Wednesday, 3 May at 16:15, in B044 we will have the pleasure to listen the talk of Assoc. Prof. Ha Quang Thinh Ngo from the Department of Mechatronics, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam.
Title: Roadmap to Cognitive Robot for Human-Machine Interaction
Abstract: Most of my research in recent time relate to the cognitive robotic system. More specifically, the behaviors and adaptive responses of both autonomous vehicles and interactive manipulators are to be found on the scope of my concerns. The purposes of these developments are to navigate socially, comfortably and intelligently in the dynamic crowd; collaborate with workers safely; and avoid any special circumstance to reach the optimum target which we naturally encounter. As a result, I conduct research on releasing the reasonable behaviors and the processes that support it. At smaller scale, my interests consist of smart actuators and industrial network that I was invented several network protocols for real-time communication, standalone motion controllers and vision-enabled mechanism. For these works, various protocols such EtherCAT, Real-time Express (RTEX) or Real-time Ethernet were studied and developed from the core elements. Based on my achievements, data in the computer vision approach is transmitted securely and rapidly while the others are exchanged in the real-time manner and synchronization. In addition, I played a role as senior researcher in the RD center where I was a PI in five projects. During that time, I have gained industrial experiences in the field of motion control and embedded systems.
Short bio: Ha Quang Thinh Ngo (firstname.lastname@example.org) received the B.S. degree from Department of Mechatronics, HCMC University of Technology (VNU-HCM) in 2006, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Department of Intelligent System Engineering from Dong-Eui University, Korea, in 2009 and 2015, respectively. At present, he is an Associate Professor in Department of Mechatronics, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, VNU-HCM.
His research interests consist of motion control, real-time systems and control theory. Dr Ngo has received VNU-HCM Award for Research Excellence in 2020, Royal Academy of Engineering Fellowships for Leaders in Innovation in 2021. He was a member of Editorial Board in several International Journals and served as Co-Chair/Technical Program Committee of several International Conferences. In addition, he also plays a role as reviewer in prestigious journals.
Assoc. Prof. Ha Quang Thinh Ngo is visiting us until May 10, working within the CO4SYS team.
