Dr. Siddhartha Mehta received his MS and PhD degrees in mechanical
engineering from the University of Florida with specialization in
nonlinear controls and robotics. He also holds a masters degree in
agricultural engineering from the University of Florida where he
developed a vision-based control system for robotic citrus harvesting.
In 2012, Dr. Mehta joined the faculty of the Department of Industrial
and Systems Engineering at the University of Florida. Dr. Mehta's research interests include visual servo
control of autonomous systems, nonlinear adaptive and robust control,
networked control systems, human-robot interaction, nonlinear Bayesian estimation, agricultural
robotics. His research activities are funded by the AFRL/MN, AFOSR, and USDA. He is the recipient of University
of Florida Technology Innovator Award (2012). Dr. Mehta is a senior member of the AIAA, a member of the IEEE, and an associate editor of the Journal of the Franklin Institute.
