26/07/21: Very excited to announce that our paper on how “Imperfect comb construction reveals the architectural abilities of honeybees” was just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The insights from this study not only benefits biology, but may serve as inspiration for future construction algorithms and robot collectives.
18/05/21: Congratulations to Nialah Wilson for having her abstract on Designing Tactile Human-Drone Interactions for Movement Instruction, accepted for an oral presentation at the 2021 STEMNoire Inaugural Research and Holistic Wellness Conference!
04/05/21: Big congratulations to Alex Zhu and Robby Huang who just received an ELI award to continue their work over the Summer on Single-Actuated Wave robots!
08/04/21: Big congratulations to Jonathan Jaramillo for getting his work on “Low-Cost, Computer Vision-Based, Prebloom Cluster Count Prediction in Vineyards” published in the special issue on Automation and AI in Agriculture in the Journal Frontiers in Agronomy. This method presents a way for small and medium-sized grape growers in the North East to improve their yield prediction early in the season using just their smart phone!
01/04/2021: Congratulations to Jack Defay, Jacob Peters, Zoe Du, Zach Brothers, and Leah Valdes on having their papers on “A Customizable, Low-Cost Alternative for Distributed 2D Flow Sensing in Swarms” and “Automated Entrance Monitoring of Managed Bumble Bees” accepted to the combined DARS-SWARM 2021 conference!
23/03/21: Kirstin Petersen receives an endowed chair title as the Aref and Manon Lahham Faculty Fellow in the College of Engineering at Cornell. This esteemed honor is in recognition of her early contributions to our understanding of collective intelligence in simple robot systems and the important role she is playing in building a community of excellence in robotics in the College of Engineering.
