Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Robot

Ian D. Walker mainly focuses on Robot, Control engineering, Control theory, Artificial intelligence and Kinematics. His work deals with themes such as Simulation and Continuum, which intersect with Robot. His studies deal with areas such as Robot manipulator, Structure, Actuator, Variety and Robot end effector as well as Control engineering.

His study of Control theory is a part of Control theory. In Artificial intelligence, Ian D. Walker works on issues like Computer vision, which are connected to Teleoperation. Ian D. Walker has researched Kinematics in several fields, including Redundancy, Real-time computing, Robot kinematics and Obstacle avoidance.

His most cited work include:

  • Soft robotics: Biological inspiration, state of the art, and future research (784 citations)
  • Kinematics for multisection continuum robots (506 citations)
  • Kinematics and the implementation of an elephant's trunk manipulator and other continuum style robots. (426 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Ian D. Walker mainly investigates Robot, Artificial intelligence, Control engineering, Control theory and Robotics. His Robot research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Redundancy, Kinematics, Simulation and Continuum. His research in Artificial intelligence intersects with topics in Fault tolerance, Human–computer interaction, Computer vision and GRASP.

The concepts of his Control engineering study are interwoven with issues in Control system and Structure. Control theory is frequently linked to Robot end effector in his study. His research investigates the connection with Robotics and areas like Fault detection and isolation which intersect with concerns in Real-time computing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Robot (63.67%)
  • Artificial intelligence (39.21%)
  • Control engineering (27.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Robot (63.67%)
  • Continuum (21.94%)
  • Kinematics (23.38%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Robot, Continuum, Kinematics, Control theory and Actuator. His Robot study is concerned with Artificial intelligence in general. Ian D. Walker interconnects Interface, Distributed computing, Teleoperation and Shape-memory alloy in the investigation of issues within Continuum.

Ian D. Walker combines subjects such as Robot hardware, Constant curvature and Motion strategy with his study of Kinematics. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Control theory, narrowing it down to issues related to the Inverse kinematics, and often Trajectory, GRASP, Torsion and Robot control. In the subject of general Actuator, his work in Soft robotics and Linear actuator is often linked to Trunk, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Control Space Reduction and Real-Time Accurate Modeling of Continuum Manipulators Using Ritz and Ritz–Galerkin Methods (26 citations)
  • Vine-Inspired Continuum Tendril Robots and Circumnutations (14 citations)
  • Exploration and Inspection with Vine-Inspired Continuum Robots (10 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Robotics

His main research concerns Robot, Continuum, Kinematics, Control theory and Continuum. His work carried out in the field of Robot brings together such families of science as Usability and Human–computer interaction. Ian D. Walker has included themes like Domain, Input device, Interface, Teleoperation and Haptic technology in his Continuum study.

His study looks at the intersection of Kinematics and topics like Constant curvature with Mathematical analysis and Robot kinematics. His Control theory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Variable stiffness and Shape-memory alloy. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Continuum, Control system and Robot end effector is strongly linked to Actuator.
