Who Are We?

We focus on the development of microrobotic systems for a wide gamut of applications. At this moment we are working on the design and fabrication of novel actuation and sensing techniques, the development of communication systems for coordination of sub-gram flying autonomous robots, and the invention and real-time implementation of control algorithms for flapping-wing flyers.
