Robot Control and Intelligence Laboratory

Prof. Sanghyun Kim

Welcome to Robot Control and Intelligence Laboratory

The Robot Control and Intelligence Laboratory (RCI Lab)  was established in the spring of 2023, when Sanghyun Kim joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Kyung Hee University. Our research spans a variety of areas in robotics and automation, with a primary focus on developing redundant control, human-robot interaction, AI-based control, and trajectory optimization for using various robots, such as mobile manipulators and humanoids, in human-centered environments. 

Research Interests


The research interests of our lab broadly span many areas of robotics. Some of our main areas of interest include:

of mobile manipulator  for handling various complex tasks in human-centered environment

for legged robots with Inverse dynamics control and AI-based planning

for transporting heavy object


with various robots
