Mechanical/Mechatronics Engineering Intern
Design next-generation tensegrity robots using 3D CAD software. Prototype various designs. Evaluate the systems through controlled experiments (e.g., drop-testing robot from an unmanned aerial vehicle) and document the testing results in detail. Work will focus on the robot’s mechanical structure and tight integration with the sensing electronics.
