Welcome to the Biomechatronics and Cognitive Engineering Research Lab (BACE Lab). Here, our main focus is to study human and his inherent capabilities. However, our approach is somehow a philosophical one; that is, we believe that the human is a creature with both physical and metaphysical aspects. Therefore, we use science and technology as tools to study the correlation between physics and metaphysics in the human being. We try to conduct the research in BACE Lab in such a way that this aim would be accessible more than ever.

Robotics and Biomechatronics, Dynamics and Control, and Biological Signal Processing are the main axes of research in BACE Lab. In this regard, you might visit the research page.

Seyed Hamidreza Heidari defended his thesis

Mr. Seyed Hamidreza Heidari, master student of BACE Lab, defended his thesis entitled at “Design and Control of Soft Grasp Using Robotic Hand”. Hamidreza developed a hardware for his control approach while he had applied the approach to a model developed in ADAMS. Hamidreza has published a paper in a domestic journal while his another paper has …

New publication of Sohrab Najafian

A new paper of Mr. Sohrab Najafian has been published in the journal of “Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine” (IF: 2.503; 2017), entitled at “Fourier-based quantification of renal glomeruli size using Hou transform and shape descriptors“. Congratulation Sohrab! Sohrab is now a PhD student at the State University of New York (SUNY), Department of Optometry. We …

Seyed Alireza Mirkhani defended his thesis

Mr. Seyed Alireza Mirkhani, master student of BACE Lab, finally, defended his thesis entitled at “EEG signal processing for the feasibility study of its application in BCI problems (control of robotic hand)”. Alireza developed a simple approach applicable in real-time BCI problems, namely WERD. The applicability and efficiency of this simple method is being studied. Congratulation Alireza!

Prospective Students

Ph.D. Students

It is highly recommended that the student pursuing a Ph.D. position in the school of of ME, IUST, would contact Dr. Beigzadeh via email. Sending academic CV would be helpful. Overall research fields in the BACE Lab could be seen in Research page.

Master Students

Newly admitted students for master programs who are interested in the following research areas are encouraged to contact us:

  • Medical diognosis/ natural temperament classification using biological analysis of biofluids (blood plasma, blood serum, saliva, …)
