Congratulations to Sajad and Omid for recieving the Queen Elizabeth II/DuPont Canada Scholarship in Science and Technology!
Patrick successfully defended his MASc thesis, “Design of a Rotating Permanent Magnet System for 5-DOF Control of Micro-Robots” on August 22. Congratulation to him for a great presentation and an excellent Masters thesis, and also as the first graduate of the Microrobotics Lab! We wish the best to Patrick.
Patrick won first place best presentation for his talk title “Magnetic Control of Micro-Robots Using Rotating Permanent Magnets” at the MIE Graduate Research Symposium, held on June 10. The picture was taken at the banquet dinner and awards ceremony following the symposium. Congratulations to Patrick!
Professor Diller and the Microrobotics Lab are featured in a news article in the University of Toronto Faculty of Engineering newsletter.
Prof. Diller receives the Best Associate Editor Award at the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, for excellent management of the review process to ensure a high quality outcome, among other factors.
The Microrobotics Lab has received funding for equipment and infrastructure through the John R. Evans Leaders Fund. This funding is from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and will be used to further develop our capabilities for microrobotics research.
MASc student Zhe Li and PhD student Jiachen Zhang have joined the microrobotics lab! Welcome!
Xian Wang has joined the Microrobotics Lab for the summer from Tianjin University, through the Mitacs Globalink summer internship program.
Our upcoming paper Six-Degrees-of-Freedom Remote Actuation of Magnetic Microrobots is a finalist for the Best Paper award at the Robotics: Science and Systems conference in July, in Berkeley California.
