Abstract:

The programmable surfaces project has investigated programming momentum transfer across surfaces for novel forms of robotic mobility. It studied cells for controlling shear and normal flows, structural systems for reversible construction, deformable actuated ultralight materials, and automated assemblers. The results offer new ways to build robots, and new ways for robots to build.
