Job Description

AIMRL group's research combines biology and robotics to uncover the principles of robustness that make animals so successful at locomotion in natural environments, and, in turn, inspire the design of the next generation of novel robots for effective real-world operation. Specifically, our current work is focused on enhancing autonomy (power, sensing and control) of insect-scale robotic platforms. Our research aims to develop a rich ecosystem of robotic devices that, in the not-so-distant future, will have the potential to benefit human lives in the areas of search and rescue, inspection and maintenance, personal assistance, and environmental monitoring.
