About Me


I grew up in China and later studied and worked in the Netherlands. In the past few years, I have been working in various engineering fields, including computer architecture, computer vision, and mechatronics.

At the moment I am working full-time as a hardware and device engineer at Connecterra, and in the meanwhile finalizing my PhD thesis as a guest of Dynamics & Control group at Eindhoven University of Technology.

Research


Embedded Vision Architecture

In this project, I have implemented an FPGA-based vision system, integrated it into a motion stage, and performed the modeling and control of the visual servo system. Experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of using visual feedback for precision motion control. Below is a demo of the 1000 frames-per-second vision-in-the-loop system. Results of this project have been presented in ICT.OPEN.2012 (slides).
