Research on Small-scale and Micro-robotic Needs at U-M

Professor Kenn Oldham and his team’s most recent work on robotics is tied to the attached series of related articles regarding testing piezoelectric/polymer small-scale robots along with a bit of battery modeling motivated by micro-robotic needs.

Article: Polymer Leg Mechanisms for Millimeter-scale Robotics

Article: Microrobot Locomotion

Article: Dynamic Structural and Contact Modeling for a Silicon Hexapod Microrobot
