Welcome to BioInMech Lab

Primary research interests in Bioinspired Intelligent Mechatronics Laboratory (BioInMech Lab) include control of biologically inspired robots, design of robot mechanisms, and exploration of environment-adaptive design methodologies for search and rescue tasks. To confer the advantages of natural systems to robotic machines, we have continuously performed studies of biological systems at bio-mechanical level and deploy this knowledge to develop biologically inspired robots and environment-adaptive machines.
