One Step at a Time
Elise and Jamison are at the beginning of their investigations into robotics engineers who are working to solve problems inherent in four-legged robots (balance, strength, resilience, sensory function, and adaptability). They want to discover if solutions informed by biomimicry of mammalian quadrupeds would be better. This involves a studying the evolution, biology, and physics of how horses, dogs, and other four-legged creatures (like flying squirrels!) legs, hooves, and centers of balance operate.
As future bridge builders of tomorrow, Charlie and Mohammed are concerned about the increasing number of dangerous bridges in our country and even close to home in our county. Their goal is to find ways to repair existing deteriorating bridges and build sustainable bridges with new materials and technologies which are economically feasible.
