The manual dexterity of humans remains unmatched by robotic manipulation systems. We aim to significantly reduce this gap by producing highly capable manipulation systems. Inspired and guided by observations and understanding of human manipulation skills, this project explores systematic co-design of hand morphology and motion generation/control to devise systems with novel (inhand) manipulation capabilities. The aim is to develop a principled understanding of soft robotic (inhand) manipulation.

Working field:

Research on soft robotics and soft manipulation, including soft hand design, soft sensorisation, (deep) learning-based control of soft sensorised hands, and co-design of soft mechanisms and control policies based on learning and optimization; PhD thesis preparation is possible
