Sangbae Kim: Actuation, structure and control of the MIT cheetah robot | CMU RI Seminar


curated by | November 8, 2015

“Sangbae Kim has served as an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT since 2009. As the director of the Biomimetic Robotics Laboratory, Sangbae has been developing bio-inspired robotic design processes. His design approaches focus on the design principles from complex biological systems from understanding the difference between biological and engineering requirements. Kim’s achievement on bio-inspired robot development includes the world’s first directional adhesive inspired from gecko lizards, and a climbing robot, Stickybot, that utilizes the directional adhesives to climb smooth surfaces.” The primary example of bioinspiration presented in this talk is the MIT Cheetah robot.

John Payne’s insight:
My apologies for overlooking this when it first became available. I have no idea how I missed it.
