Research Group:

Intelligent Systems Laboratory [ISL]

The laboratory was established in 1997 at National Dong Hwa University by me for experimental and theoretical research in vision, robotics, and control. Since August 2001, the Laboratory has been affiliated to National Taipei University of Technology. We are interested in and actively working on developing on-line calibrated visual intelligent space for flexible and efficient navigation and control of autonomous mobile robots, and handling multi-robot coordination and cooperation control. Moreover, we are committed to the development of precision positioning system that can be applied to medical radiation therapy, and real-time visual servo technology for automatic assembly systems.We have a nicely equipped experimental research laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment including a six-degree-of-freedom robot arm, experimental mobile robots, CCD/CMOS cameras, workstations, and PCs, etc. Our current members consist of eleven graduate students (1 Ph.D., 11 M.S.) and twelve undergraduate students working on robotics, intelligent space, medical therapy and industrial application projects.

News and Events:

The Control Division in EE recruits new Ph.D./Master's students every year in the fall term. Prospective graduate students are welcome to contact me directly for possible research opportunities in ISL.


The vision-based control system that we have been working on is a PC-based computer-controlled intelligent system. We would be very interested in commercializing the system for industrial applications. Comments and suggestions from industry will be very much appreciated.


A novel passenger car and motorcycle vision-based detection system has been completely developed so that it can be integrated to a driver assist system for intelligent and safe transportation.


The 1999 IEEE CONTROL SYSTEMS AWARD has been awarded to A. Stephen Morse, IEEE fellow and Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.A. "For pioneering the geometric approach to linear multivariable control synthesis and contributions to nonlinear and adaptive control theory."
--- Congratulations to Professor A. Stephen Morse, who is my doctoral thesis advisor.
