Desktop Robotics
Is it possible to build robots which take the desktop as their task domain?
Dynamic Climbing
The goal of this project is to show how robots can gain access to difficult-to-reach places by taking full advantage of their dynamics and the potential reaction forces afforded by the environment. We build robots that use dynamic motions to climb vertically using frictional contact forces.
