Welcome to the Soft Robotics Laboratory (仿生结构与机器人实验室)

The Soft Robotics Laboratory (Lab of Bioinspired Robots and Soft Robotics) was founded within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Hanyang University (Seoul Campus). The lab houses all the necessary tools to design, create, and evaluate novel robots. The lab employs a highly experimental approach to developing new types of soft robots and bioinspired robots with unique properties and functions in various application areas. The Soft Robotics Lab at Hanyang aims to push back the frontier of the field.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. -- James 1:2-4
