19/06/19: Very excited to announce that we were selected for a Cornell Institute of Digital Agriculture award to support our newest project on “Improving strawberry yield through native and robotic pollinators“, in collaboration with Prof. Scott McArt (Cornell) and Prof. Nils Napp (joining Cornell in Spring 2020).
17/06/19: Big congrats to all the graduate and undergraduate students that got THREE papers accepted to the International Symposium for Multi-Robot and Multi-Agent Systems 2019. Their papers concern hardware, coordination, and sensing opportunities in flexible modular robots! (More info to come…)

30/04/19: Big congrats to Emilie Baker for passing her ME qualifying exam in Design; Danna Ma for passing her ECE qualifying exam in VLSI; and to both Danna Ma and Jonathan Jaramillo for passing their ECE qualifying exam in Probability! All graduate students are now well on their way to make an impact in precision agriculture and structural health monitoring, spanning techniques in robotics, computer vision, bio-inspired mechanisms, and soft sensing.
26/04/19: Big congratulations to Zoe Du for receiving the Cornell Engineering Learning Initiatives Award to continue her work on a broadly accessible platform for collective robotic construction over Summer!
