Dr. Riaz Uddin received his BE and M.Engg degrees from the Department of Electrical Engineering, from NED University of Engineering and Technology in 2005 and 2008, respectively.
He received his PhD Degree in Mechatronics in 2016 from (Human-Robotics Lab) GIST, South Korea.
His PhD research is based on research projects from the international industries/organizations such as Agency for Defense Development (ADD Korea), National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF), Ministry of Science, ICT & Future Planning and Industrial fusion strategic technology development program, Basic Research Projects in High-tech Industrial Technology, and Global Frontier R&D Program, Ministry of Industries, Korea.
During these projects, He has also been the part of Haptic Technology Research Center (HTRC), South Korea. He is the inventor of Predictive Energy Bounding Algorithm (EBA) for Stable & Transparent Haptic Teleoperation Control and published the state-of-the-art systematic review for Predictive Teleoperation Control Approaches. He is also the designer of the tactile sensing based suture attachment force measurement device. He is also a very active reviewer of reputed journals from IEEE, Elsevier and Springer. He is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi, Pakistan (initially joined as lecturer in 2005), where he is responsible to teach undergraduate/ Masters/ PhD courses majorly related to Controls, Robotics, Mechatronics, and Power Systems Control along with supervising Masters and PhD students. In addition, he is also working as Deputy Management Representative ISO 9000 / Deputy Director Quality Enhancement Cell of the University. He has been the Co-Convenor, Conference Chair and Deputy Chief Organizer of International Electrical Engineering Conference (IEEC-2016, -2017, (-2018, -2019 & -2020), respectively). In 2018, He won a mega project for establishing Haptics, Human-Robotics and Condition Monitoring Lab affiliated Lab of National Center of Robotics and Automation (NCRA) by Planning Commission (PC)/ HEC, Pakistan. This lab is the Joint Lab of NED-MUET and he is the Principal Investigator. The lab will focus on the design and development of Tele-manipulation Robots for the disaster management applications and fabrication of STEM-based Education/Assistive Robots. He (along with his team) recently invented a Smart Suture Force Measurement device that is accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (Top Journal worldwide in general instrumentation and measurements).
“He (along with his team) recently designed low-cost ventilator (NED-Ventilator) in this COVID-19 pandemic, whose initial progress
was covered by International & multiple Local Media such BBC world, BBC Urdu, Dunya News, 92 News, 24 News, GTV, Hum TV along with official social media platforms FB/Youtube etc.”
