Welcome to the General Robotics & Autonomous Systems and Processes (GRASP) Laboratory of the Automotive and Mechatronics Department, at the Ontario Tech University (formerly UOIT). The GRASP Laboratory was founded in 2015, under the directorship of Prof. Haoxiang Lang.

The main goal of the GRASP Laboratory is the design, development and application of advanced technologies for autonomous systems and processes, with emphasis on mechatronics, robotics, machine vision, control and artificial intelligence. GRASP Lab carry out research in the following areas:

  • Mechatronics
  • Robotics
  • Control System Instrumentation
  • Automations
  • Sensors and Actuators
  • Machine Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis

GRADUATE: Students holding scholarships (e.g. NSERC and other national scholarships) are urged to apply at any time. Please emphasize it in communication. Additional top-up funds may provide for excellent students.

For details, please send me emails with supporting documents(e.g.: CV, transcript). For general information about admission and graduate studies at Ontario Tech, please see the Faculty of Graduate Studies website.

UNDERGRADUATE: Our lab accepts a small number of Co-op Students, Interns and Volunteers, who are interented in doing reserach in Robotics and Mechtronics. You are encouraged to apply for Undergraduate Student Research Awards. Additional top-up funds may also provide for excellent undergraduate students.
