Recent Advances in Bio-inspired Robots

Date: 27 Sep 2006 - 27 Sep 2006

Venue: Alice Koh


The last several years have seen a new wave of biologically inspired robots emerging from laboratories throughout the world. Robot designers are turning to nature to obtain inspirations to develop more advanced and sophisticated robots. Potential applications of bio-inspired robots are being seen in the field of healthcare, medical, humanitarian, education, entertainment, military, security and even space applications. In the next decade or so, these robots are envisioned to become a part of everyday life, just like how mobile phones and laptops have become nowadays. This seminar aims to explore the research and business opportunities in edutainment and bio-inspired robots as well as to excite young people in science and engineering through robots.
