Prof. Feng Gao, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China
高峰, 上海交通大学机械与动力工程学院, 教授、博士生导师,

His chief research domain is the parallel robots. The major achievements obtained include the three aspects , which are the theory, invention and application of parallel robots. In the theory aspect, the physical model of the solution space for mechanical dimensional design of macro and micro parallel manipulators, the special Gfcoordinates for the  type synthesis of parallel robots and the criteria  for  design of reducible parallel mechanisms were proposed. More than 123 papers and  3 books about parallel manipulators were published . In the invention aspect, the 116 invention patents of China were applied, which are related to many kinds of parallel robots,  parallel machine tools, micro parallel manipulators, multi-axis force/torque sensors with the parallel structures. And 86 of them were authorized. In the application aspect, the 6-axis micro force and torque sensors with the Stewart platform structures, the 6-axis mouse for VR, the 5-DOF parallel machine tool, 6-axis micro-parallel manipulator were developed.
