Visit to the JHU Computational Sensory-Motor Systems Lab
The Computational Sensory-Motor Systems Lab headed by Dr. Ralph Etienne-Cummings focuses on multiple research areas which include neuromorphic and biomorphic systems, motion control, ultrasonic imaging, VLSI sensors with applications in autonomous robots, surgery, entertainment, medicine, alternative energy technologies among others. Specifically, in the neuromorphic systems, the group develops biologically inspired sensors and sensory computation systems which mimic the structure, plasticity, algorithm, asynchronous event-driven protocol of their biological equivalents. Besides developing novel VLSI systems and architectures, some of the recent works have included experiments to understand neurophysiology of spinal neural circuits, interface with them, decode their sensory-motor relationships and use these relationships to control biomorphic robots.
