A Comparative Study of Simulations and Experimental Testing on Screw-Propelled Vehicle in a Lunar Simulant
Researching the use of screw-like wheels for rovers on other planets, moons or asteroids will help enable better space exploration.
Studying how screw-propelled robots move on granular media will allow us to build more sophisticated space robots in the future.
Designing a magnetic needle steering and tracking system will help advance minimally invasive surgery using robotics.
Characterizing the force interactions of basilisk lizards will assist in the development of robots that can run on water.
