- Research in Precision Manufacturing especially in the area of mechanical alignment system and precision mechanical assembly
- Development of advance equipment and instrument for industry especially in the area of development of state-of-the-art precision measurement system with precision level up to a few nm range
- Development of new generation of material handling system and development of automated patrol system.
Manufacturing precision is important because it affects product quality and cost. Today, with global competition in product quality and product cost, continuous improvement of manufacturing precision has become an important element of business success for many industries. Dr Lee is interested in research of low cost manufacturing methodology and tooling that can improve the level of manufacturing precision for many types of products. Besides research, Dr. Lee is working with industry to produce advance high precision manufacturing equipment and system as well as working on new generation of automatics material handling system, patrolling and dispatching system.
