BRIEF BIO

Dr. LAM, Tin Lun is currently a Research Fellow with the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received his B.Eng. Degree with First Class Honors and Ph.D. Degree in the Department of Automation and Computer-Aided Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2006 and 2010, respectively. Dr. Lam is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE-RAS). Dr. Lam’s research interests include the areas of field robotics, human-machine interface, novel mechanism design, and intelligent control. He has developed a series of robotic and automation systems, including telepresence robot, tree-climbing robot, four wheel independent steering and driving vehicle, and industrial 6-axis robotic arm system. Based on his research, he has published two monographs, five international journal papers, over twenty international conference papers from major international journals and conference proceedings in robotics and automation such as TRO, JFR, ICRA and IROS, and several patents. One of the journal papers was received an IEEE/ASME T-MECH Best Paper Award at 2011. Dr. Lam has been involved in four projects funded by the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Commission and two projects funded by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council.

RESEARCH PROJECTS

TreebotTreebot

Treebot is a tree-climbing robot that has high maneuverability on an irregular tree environment. It is able to reach many places on trees including branches that surpasses the state of the art tree climbing robots. Treebot can maneuver on a complex tree environment, but only five actuators are used in the mechanism. As a result, Treebot can keep in compact size and lightweight.

Omni-directional VehicleOmni-directional Vehicle

The omni-directional kart, named “OK-1”, is a hybrid electric vehicle with technology of omni-directional steering, which is designed and developed in the Advance Robotics Lab. It is omni-directional, because it can make crab-like parallel translation and tornado-like rotation. Hence, parking becomes an easy manipulation for even a freshman of driving.
