Department of Mechanical Engineering
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
The Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven has a long tradition in mechatronics and motion control for machine tools and robots. Its research deals with the design of new "intelligent"machines, whose controllers integrate, in realtime, the machines' motion control with external sensor-based estimation and perception functionalities, such as force or distance sensing, or visual servoing. Since about a decade, the Department is the main contributor to the open source machine tool and robot control software framework OROCOS.
