Research Interests

Autonomous vehicle and robotic systems, physical human/robot interactions, mechatronics, automation science and engineering with applications to civil infrastructure, oceanic and manufacturing systems. He is the Director of the Robotics, Automation and Mechatronics (RAM) Lab at Rutgers. Currently, Dr. Yi and the students at RAM Lab work on various exciting research projects, such as sensor-based tire/road interaction modeling and control, human-inspired safety-preserved agile vehicle maneuvers; autonomous motorcycles/bicycles; unstable physical human/robot interaction (upHRI) and rehabilitation robotics, autonomous robots for automated non-destructive evaluation and rehabilitation system for bridge decks, and robotic biological sampler system for the autonomous underwater gliders, etc.
