Robots that use wheels are commonly available, but robots that walk on legs are still mainly found in research labs. New technologies such as 3-D printing and flexible electronics have made it possible to explore legged robots without breaking the bank. At CSU Channel Islands we have been experimenting with these new technologies and are happy to share our latest results.
David Claveau, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at CSU Channel Islands. Before joining CI he taught at Arizona State University where it was too hot, and before that he lived in Canada where it was too cold. Now he lives in Port Hueneme, California, where it is just right. At home he watches the same four or five movies over and over again.
