Explore the design space of self-assembling milimetre-scale robots
Use Sofa Tools for Multi-Material Simulations to explore the design space of self-assembling milimetre-scale robots. In particular to look at self-assembling surface nets, photlithographic masks and curing protocols to manufacture and assemble them. This is simulation and programming for design.
The goal of this project it to design rules to generate arthropod robot exoskeletons by photolithography.
Timeframe: 6 months
