Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory

Welcome to the Harvard Microrobotics Lab Our research focuses on mechanics, materials, design, and manufacturing for novel robots.

Basic research questions for both of these themes include multi-scale and multi-material manufacturing, new sensors and actuators (either small and lightweight or consisting of entirely soft materials), controls for highly compliant and/or highly dynamic robots, and mechanical intelligence (i.e.

The lab employs a highly experimental approach to developing robots and we use these robots as tools to explore fundamental questions in micromechanics, actuation, fluid mechanics, controls, and microelectronics.

3D printed snake robot

SAW (single actuator wave-like robot) is the first robot that produces a pure wave-like motion with a single motor, “a novel bioinspired robot which can move forward or backward by producing a continuously advancing wave.” Its 3D printed spine is flexible, making it perfect to cover irregular terrain such as grass and gravel.

Inspired by snakes, the robot was miniaturized to the size of a pen to see how well it functioned, with further studies being carried out to see how small it can be produced.

This includes miniature crawling robots and serial crawling robots for search and rescue applications, agricultural and medical purposes.

People

The lab is currently exploring the development of robotic and image-guided approaches to minimally invasive surgical procedures, including projects that are improving biomechanical modeling, medical imaging, robotic surgery and rehabilitation robotics.

By bringing together expertise in materials synthesis, complex fluids, microfluidics, robotics, biology and assembly, they are designing and patterning functional materials with controlled composition and architecture on multiple length scales.

RADHIKA NAGPAL Fred Kavli Professor of Computer Science Office: 235 Maxwell Dworkin Email: rad@seas.harvard.edu Office Phone: (617) 496-6434 Lab Name: Self-Organizing Systems Research Group The Self-Organizing Systems Research Group sheds light on the nature of coordination in large groups in order to better understand natural systems like social insect colonies and multicellular self-organization, and to engineer robust and powerful technologies like multi-robot systems for use in search and rescue, construction, or agriculture.

Her group studies bio-inspired algorithms, programming paradigms, and hardware designs for swarm/modular robotic systems and smart materials, drawing inspiration mainly from social insects and multicellular biology.

WALSH Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering Office: 328 Pierce Hall Email: walsh@seas.harvard.edu Office Phone: (617) 496-7128 Lab Name: The Harvard Biodesign Lab The Harvard Biodesign Lab brings together researchers from the engineering, industrial design, apparel, clinical and business communities to develop robots and smart medical devices that are specifically intended for interacting and cooperating with humans.

The lab focuses on applying disruptive technologies to the development of robotic devices for augmenting and restoring human performance, including a soft exosuit that can assist an individual with locomotion as part of the DARPA Warrior Web project.

The Zickler lab is working to build systems that visually understand and interact with their environment, exploring computer vision using physics-based approaches that explicitly consider illumination, reflection, refraction, scattering, and imaging.

Studying the geometry and connectivity of the brain's architecture is a natural way to explore neural computation, but there are no quantitative, 3D reconstructions of mammalian brain architectures for any species.

The lab's enabling technology is a unique Brain Tissue Scanner (BTS) of our own invention that achieves the data acquisition rates necessary to make possible for the first time scanning and imaging an entire mammalian brain.
