Goldfarb Lab
Professor M. Goldfarb 
The design and control of electro-mechanical devices is the primary concern of this center, in which major efforts in the development of piezoelectrically-actuated small scale mobile robots, of piezoelectric motors, and of macro-micro telemanipulator systems for scaled bilateral teleoperation have been sustained. Other work has involved issues related to the design of haptic interfaces and virtual mechanical environments, and the development of smart material based actuators. The center includes a full complement of facilities for the prototyping, testing, and analysis of electromechanical devices.
