Prof. Goswami joined Intuitive Surgical, California, in 2016 where he is a Principal Systems Analyst. Before Intuitive Surgical Ambarish was a Principal Scientist at Honda Research Institute in California. At Honda, Ambarish performed research in humanoid robots, assistive exoskeletons, mechatronics and vehicles. He also led the System Integration and Control Group for the self-driving car activities (AD/ADAS) and in 2015 his team successfully demonstrated sensor and GPS mediated autonomous driving in an experimental urban setting. Ambarish received the Bachelor's degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, the Master's degree from Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, and the Ph.D. degree from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, all in Mechanical Engineering.

For four years following his Ph.D. Ambarish worked at the INRIA Laboratory in Grenoble, France, as a permanent scientific staff (Charge de Recherche). He was a member of "BIP" Project which developed the first anthropomorphic biped robot in France. Subsequently, he became an IRCS Fellow at the Center for Human Modeling and Simulation at the University of Pennsylvania. He then worked as a core animation software developer for 3D Studio Max at Autodesk. Ambarish is an originator of the Compass Gait Model and the Reaction Mass Pendulum (RMP) model which are used to study gait of biped robots and human. Ambarish has also contributed to the understanding of humanoid robot balance and has introduced the Foot Rotation Indicator (FRI) point and Centroidal Moment Pivot (CMP).

Ambarish has more than 80 publications with a total of more than 7000 Google Scholar citations; he has 21 patents. Ambarish is in the Editorial Board of Robotica (Cambridge University Press) and is the Editor-in-Chief of the forthcoming Humanoid Robotics: A Reference, from Springer. Ambarish is an ASME Fellow (2013). Prof. Vadakkepat , an Associate Prof. at the National Univ. of Singapore is the founder secretary of the Federation of Int'l Robot-soccer Assoc. and currently it's General Secretary.

Prof. Vadakkepat received his M.Tech and PhD from Indian Institute of Tech. Madras, in 1989 and 1996 respectively. While pursuing Post-Doctoral studies at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Tech. (KAIST, 96-98), he was awarded the Korea Science and Eng. Foundation (KOSEF) fellowship. Since 1999, he is with the National Univ.

of Singapore. His research interest include Distributed robotic systems, Humanoid robotics, Biomorphs, Neuro-Fuzzy Controllers and Intelligent Control techniques and, has publications in several leading international journals. He is an associate editor of the Int. Journal of Humanoid Robotics.
