Technical Talk

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

IEEE Young Professionals, Windsor Section presents:

Towards Skill Transfer via Learning-Based Guidance: Adaptive Haptic Guidance
for Virtual Reality based Training

Abstract: This talk presents an overview in the recent work on gesture-based haptic guidance for physical humanrobot interaction (pHRI) that can be used in virtual minimally invasive surgery (MIS) training. An approach in which the knowledge and experience of experts have been modeled and used to improve the unpredictable motions of novice trainees. Two statistical models, hidden Markov model (HMM) and hidden Conditional Random Fields (HCRF), have been used to train gesture models for a virtual MIS related task.

Speaker: Dr. Mehrdad H. Zadeh, Associate Professor Kettering University

Speaker Bio: Dr. Zadeh is an associate professor and an advisor of Auto Drive Challenge™ competition at Kettering University, MI. From Sept. 2015 to January 2017, he served as a visiting associate professor at Johns Hopkins University, Laboratory for Computational Sensing + Robotics (LCSR), MD, where he collaborates on the design and development of haptic-enabled surgical simulation.

Technical Talk

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

IEEE Windsor Section presents “Radiation Hardened CMOS Circuits

Abstract: Soft errors have long plagued the semiconductor field, first showing up in space applications and later in terrestrial applications. Technology scaling and low-voltage/low-power requirements are further exacerbating the occurrence of soft errors in nano-scale circuits. A soft error occurs when charge generated by energetic particles is collected by reverse-biased junctions. In this talk, we will review the background and highlight recent research done at the University of Waterloo on circuit techniques to mitigate soft errors.

Speaker: Dr. Manoj Sachdev, Professor University of Waterloo

Speaker Bio: Manoj Sachdev is a professor in electrical and computer engineering department at the University of Waterloo. His research interests include low-power and high-performance circuit design, reliability and manufacturing issues of nano-metric integrated circuits. He has written five books, has contributed to over 200 technical articles in conferences and journals. He holds more than 35 granted and pending US patents in the broad area of VLSI circuit design and test.
