Scientists working with technology and the body/life

A biologist working at UC Berkeley who is studying and researching on the dynamics of the foot and is trying to build the perfect model of the distributed foot for the robots of the future.

The BDML members contain the faculty, a group of students ranging from PostDoc, PhD, graduate, and undergrad, and visitors work at Standford University's Center for Design Research, part of the department of Mechanical Engineering. As of now, they are working on human-safe robotics, in collaboration with the Artificial Intelligence Lab and members of BDML are in development of an arm structure and energy-absorbing artificial skin for a low-inertia, high-power manipulator (in terms, an android-like human-robotic arm).
