Laboratory of Intelligent Systems
Our fields of activity span:
We take inspiration from nature and study, design, and control of agile aerial robots with rich sensory and motor abilities that can move and work in very different environments
We investigate and develop novel soft wearable robots for natural interactions and symbiosis between humans and robots.
We are interested in the study, design, and control of soft robotic technologies that amplify the sensory-motor capabilities and human interaction of robots without increasing their complexity and weight.

A miniature stretchable pump for the next generation of soft robots
Scientists at EPFL have developed a tiny pump that could play a big role in the development of autonomous soft robots, lightweight exoskeletons and smart clothing. Flexible, silent and weighing only one gram, it is poised to replace the rigid, noisy and bulky pumps currently used. The scientists’ work has just been published in Nature.
