Laboratory of Intelligent Systems
Our fields of activity span:
We take inspiration from nature for the design, learning and control of agile drones that can fly in cluttered environments and in swarms.
We investigate and develop novel soft wearable robots for natural interactions between humans and robots.
We investigate smart materials, mechanical design, learning and control of soft robots that capture the resilience and adaptability of living organisms.
