He has worked on many different mechatronic systems, include flight simulators, exoskeletons and medical devices. He has extensive experience in designing mechatronics systems from the ground up and a unique expertise for advanced control and algorithms.
Bretislav holds a diploma of engineering and a Ph.D. in the field of artificial intelligence from the Technical University of Brno. For several years he worked on Technical University of Brno as a project manager heading research team developing artificial intelligence for robots. After moving to Canada in 1983, he worked for the National Research Council of Canada and consequently for Servo Robot where he was the head of research and development. He was responsible for the development and design of laser based cameras and optimization of welding processes. He coordinated major projects for Caterpillar, IBM, Lockheed, NASA and the European space program Arian. In 1991 he established his own consulting company specialized in the field of optimization of various industrial processes. In 2002 he joined B&M InterNets s.r.o. in the Czech Republic. Under his leadership, BMI developed proprietary methodology enabling visualization and analysis of the multidimensional models (nDAnalysis).
Mojtaba Ahmadi received the B.Sc. degree from Sharif University of Technology in 1989, the M.Sc. degree from the University of Tehran, in 1992, and a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from McGill University in 1998. He worked on robotic teleoperation and autonomous operation as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal (1998 - 2000) and from 2000 to 2005, he held senior positions in different industries including: Opal-RT Technologies Inc., Quantum and Maxtor Corporations, and the Institute for Aerospace Research of the National Research Council Canada. He joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University in 2005 where he is currently an Associate Professor. He founded the Advanced Biomechatronics and Locomotion Lab (ABL) and his current interests include rehabilitation robotics, assistive devices, human-robot interaction, design and control of mechatronics systems, and legged robots.
