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.

Variable-Stiffness Tensegrity Spine
A novel robotic spine can transition from compliant to stiff mode and back. The artificial spine consists of a variable-stiffness tensegrity design inspired by the vertebrate spine and could be used as the backbone of safe robotic manipulators, or agile and strong robots.
