mini-bots URA

A nascent multidisciplinary collaboration between Alice Quillen (Physics), Hesam Askari (Mech. Eng.), Scott Seidman (Biomedical Eng.), and Jessica Shang has been awarded a University Research Award to develop small robots that navigate complex media (sand, slime, mud, etc.) without conventional locomotion methods. The Hydro Lab will investigate the swimming mechanisms of these robots in viscous fluids.
