Welcome to the web pages of ABE’s Advanced Machinery Engineering and Manufacturing Systems group. We are dedicated to engineering new technologies and systems which enhance the productivity, efficiency, and performance of advanced machinery and manufacturing systems. We have many key areas of research and outreach including advanced machine design, machinery automation and robotics, sensor development, machinery and manufacturing system modeling, embedded systems, and precision technologies for production agriculture. In addition, much of our current work addresses critical needs within the developing bioeconomy. We are also directly connected to three ABE degree options: Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural Systems Technology, and Industrial Technology.
