A group made up of several members of the Microrobotics Lab and several UofT undergraduate students is competing in the Mobile Microrobotics Challenge at ICRA2018, in Brisbane, Australia! Good luck as the team prepares!
Our research is highlighted in an NBCnews article on micro-robotics!
Prof. Diller received the “Early Researcher Award” from Ontario for the research done by the Microrobotics Lab on microrobotic actuation and controls! This award will help support our research in making dextrous microrobotic tools for healthcare applications!
Eric received the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department Early Career Teaching Award!
Both Onaizah and Sajad have received the Barbara and Frank Milligan Graduate Fellowship for their research in biomedical device fabrication and control. Congrats!
Congratulations to Mohammad on receiving the NSERC PhD Scholarship (PGS-D), to support his work on multi-agent control!
Congratulations To Mohammad that his paper “Optimization-based formation control of underactuated magnetic microrobots via inter-agent forces” won the Best Student Paper Award at the 2017 conference Manipulation and Robotics and Small Scales (MARSS)! This is the second year in a row that his papers have been nominated for this award! Congrats Mohammad for the great work! link
Prof. Diller received the Connaught New Researcher Award at UofT (awarded at the highest level) for our lab’s work in magnetically-driven microrobots. This award will help support our work in developing medical devices for minimally-invasive surgery.
Jiachen and Tianqi received the awards for “1st place Oral Presentation” and “1st place Poster Presentation” respectively in the category of Advanced Materials, Applied Mechanics and Robotics at the MIE department Graduate Research Symposium on May 18! Great job to the Microrobotics Laboratory for sweeping the awards.
Congrats to our other great presentations by Onaizah and Mohammad as well!
