The Smart Materials and Robotics Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research lab within the
Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
We are creating new multifunctional materials that are safe for human interaction and exhibit the extraordinary resilience of natural biological tissue.
These efforts lie in the emerging fields of wearable computing, soft robotics, and robotic materials.
Wearable Computing Electronic skin for gesture monitoring
Robotics Soft robotic quadruped
Advanced Material Development Robust soft-matter electronics
Our research receives support from NASA Nebraska EPSCoR.
Congratulations to Aaron Haake and Vince Chong for receiving 2020-2021 academic year UCARE funding.
