Introduction to Expert:
Weiliang Xu, professor, fellow of the New Zealand Academy of Engineering, senior member of IEEE, chair in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Auckland.
This talk introduces our 2-decade long research program on digestion robotics. The biological principle and the biomimetic design of these robotic organs are presented with focus on their distributed actuation, sensing and closed-loop control. Science challenges in the digestion robotics are outlined. Case studies of the applications in food/drug/implant will be shown.
