We design and manufacturing of new classes of structured materials with unprecedented capabilities of morphing shape, varying stiffness, sensing, responding to and communicating with their surrounding environment. Such materials constitute “robotic matter”.
Soft Robotic Applications
We explore soft robotic applications such as soft grippers, soft exoskeletons, assistive devices, human-robot interactions, etc.
Smart Sensing Interfaces
We create multi-modal artificial skins that can respond to various tactile or touchless signals, which can be applied in robotic sensing and perception.
We develop additive manufacturing technologies for soft and stimuli response materials, which can be used in robotic sensing and actuation.
