SUSTech Hongqiang Wang’s team proposes novel artificial muscle and mesoscale robots


Recently, Associate Professor Hongqiang Wang's group (Dept. MEE, SUSTech) proposed a novel design paradigm for artificial muscle, implementing highly compliant, controllable, and scalable mesoscale actuators and robots. This work was published in the International Journal of Robotics Research (a top journal in the robotics field) as "Biologically inspired electrostatic artificial muscles for insect-sized robots".

The Academic Times and News SUSTech also reported this work.
