Vancouver, BC: Genesis Robotics announced today the members of its Advisory Board, who will help contribute to the development of Genesis’ LiveDrive Technology.
The three members of the Advisory Board are Dr. Alejandro Ramirez-Serrano, Dr. Ashish Deshpande, and Dr. Bram Vanderborght. Each member is an expert in the robotics field.
Dr. Alejandro Ramirez-Serrano is a professor in the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Department at the University of Calgary, and is also the Director of the department’s Autonomous Reconfigurable/Robotic Systems Lab. Dr. Ramirez-Serrano’s research focuses on Unmanned Vehicle Systems, including ground and aerial vehicles, as well as biologically inspired robots, and reconfigurable robots.
Dr. Ashish Deshpande is an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas. He earned his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2007, and then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Neurobotics Laboratory at the University of Washington in Seattle.
Dr. Deshpande is the Director of the Rehabilitation and Neuromuscular (ReNeu) Robotics Lab at the University of Texas. The Lab researches and develops robotic devices that assist human rehabilitation, improve prostheses, and offer fitness opportunities to the severely disabled.
Dr. Bram Vanderborght is a professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. In 2003 he received his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the same institution, graduating with the highest distinction. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine.
Dr. Vanderborght’s areas of research include humanoid robots, cognitive and physical human robot interaction, robot assisted therapy, rehabilitation robotics, and actuator technology.
The members of the Advisory Board will use their considerable knowledge and years of expertise to help guide the development of Genesis’ revolutionary LiveDrive Technology. The LiveDrive is a ground-breaking direct-drive robotic actuator, which will allow for faster, safer, and more versatile robots.
