ARMOR Lab Soft Robotics
Han-Joo Lee, a graduate student in Professor Kenneth Loh's ARMOR Lab, is working on a new way to make soft robots move. The method he's developing uses ultrasonic atomization — similar to how humidifiers work— to get soft, biomimetic tissues to expand and move. The research was published in Soft Materials and Structures on January 19.
Lee's talk about this research at Lab Expo 2019's Graduate Showcase won 2nd place from the judges panel, and third place in the popular vote.
