Bingxian Mu

Assistant Professor
Office: UNH CEPS, Kingsbury Hall, Durham, NH 03824

Prof. Bingxian Mu joined the Mechanical Engineering faculty at UNH in January 2020. Prior to joining the faculty at UNH, he received his M.S. and Ph.D. from University of Victoria in the Applied Control and Information Processing Laboratory (ACIPL), and was a Control System Engineer at Active Safety & Autonomous Diagnostics Group in General Motors Canada.

His research explores several problems: 1. Ground/Aerial/Underwater Robotics and autonomous system design, modelling, identification, state estimation, control and analysis; 2. Theoretical development of Multi-agent Systems (MASs) and its applications; 3. Mechatronics device development for smart home, smart city and health care.
