Yogesh Singh graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Government College of Engineering, Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh (India) in 2008. He received M. Tech degree in Machine Design from National Institute of Technology Rourkela, Odisha, India, in 2012. He got his PhD (Robotics) from Indian Institute of Technology Indore, MP (India) in 2016. He then worked as postdoctoral fellow at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India, from January 2017 to July 2017. From August 2017 to July 2018, he worked as an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at SRM Institute of Science and Technology Chennai, India.
In July 2018, he joined the faculty of the Mechanical Engineering at National Institute of Technology Silchar, Assam, India. His main research interests include kinematic and dynamic modelling of the robotic manipulator, parallel manipulator and nonlinear control of robotic systems. He has published more than 40 articles in top class journals and conference proceedings.
He has four externally funded research projects from DST, CSIR and SERB, Govt. of India.
Research Highlights:
1 Development and performance evaluation of a vertical milling machine work table based on planar parallel configuration is performed. The motion control experiments are conducted with a help of a predefined complex trajectory to evaluate the system capabilities and performance. PhD (2012- 2016)
1.1 Development of a sitting type lower limb rehabilitation mechanism is also performed to show the usefulness of the planar parallel manipulator in lower limb rehabilitation process.
2 In collaboration with an industry partner, Strategy Automation Solutions, a micro-milling setup is developed for large travel range with high precision positioning. Combination of gross and fine positioning actuators, with a single high precision sensor, is used for the same. Post- Doctoral (2017)
3 SMA springs based XY and Theta motion platform is developed. The varied Direct Current is supplied to the SMA spring actuators with the help of variable DC power supply (3). The actuation of the springs at the legs of the manipulator is carried out in different combinations
