new designs for robotic surgical tools or
even airplane wings that change their
shape with the push of a button. In their
latest research, Francois Barthelat, senior
author of the study and his colleagues
drew on a range of approaches, including
computer simulations and 3D-printed
materials, to dive deep into the biomechanics
of these agile structures.
Assistant Professor Orit Peleg's research
within the College of Engineering
and Applied Science and the BioFrontiers
Institute works to understand
the behavior of disordered living systems
by merging tools from physics, biology,
engineering, and computer science.
The work could have lasting
implications for many fields, including
the design and use of autonomous systems
for everyday life.
Engineers at CU Boulder have uncovered
a distinct behavior in colonies of
fire ants cooperating in flood situations.
PhD candidates Robert Wagner, Kristen
Such, Ethan Hobbs, and Professor
Franck Vernerey studied how the ants
spontaneously form tether-like protrusions
that help them navigate and escape
flooded environments. The researchers
hope their work will inspire
future studies by providing swarm roboticists
and engineers with ant-inspired
rules that could help achieve complex
functional tasks.
The U.S. Navy has an ongoing interest
in studying decompression sickness,
58
which is often referred to as " the bends. "
Assistant Professor C. Wyatt Shields and
his group seek to understand how immune
cells in human lungs respond to
extreme diving conditions to learn more
about the origins of this affliction. The
lab group is currently developing a
" lung-on-a-chip " device as a model system
that replicates the physiological conditions
of human lungs experiencing
high pressure loads.
Assistant Professor Alessandro Roncone
and his team is creating skins for
robots to maximize their local sensing
capabilities, improving operational
safety and human-robot interaction
along the way. The goal is to create a
soft multi-functional layer that can be
placed on robots, containing sensors
that measure pressure and proximity
along with a host of other features inspired
by the properties in human skin.
The idea would be to fabricate and deploy
these artificial skins quickly for different
situations, such as advanced
manufacturing, where robots are increasingly
teaming with humans to get
the job done.
Technology Transfer
As the commercialization arm of CU
Boulder, Venture Partners prepares campus
innovators to bring technologies
and ideas to market. For more information,
