COVID-19 is affecting our research @CRL since end of March 2020. Everyone is working from home, or better, trying to work from home during a pandemic. Our labs are closed and we miss our robots as much as the social interaction with each other.

CRL moved to Zoom meetings. We have weekly lab meetings, journal clubs, and one-on-one meetings to stay connected.

Unprecedented summer research is kicking off these days. Beside our graduate students focussing on advancing their theses research projects, we were fortunate to attract a great team of summer research students. We are working together to advance the current state of continuum robotics research from all over the world . Together, we are pushing the boundary! Stay tuned on what this summer holds!
