My name is Hung Pham. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Robotics at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, under the supervision of Dr. Quang-Cuong Pham.
My research interests lie in motion planning and control for robots. I investigate algorithms that can plan dynamically feasible motions for robots and also control strategies that allow optimal executions.
I spent a great deal of time recently working on toppra – a library for planning fast motion for industrial robots. The algorithm can account for dynamic constraints such as joint torques, friction force or suction force from suction cup. See this video for a demonstration of a robot picking objects using suction cup at the fastest possible speed. The relevant papers can be found here and here.
Thank you and have a nice day!
