About UsThe MSC Lab focuses on designing and developing control strategies for mechanical systems. We are part of the Mechanical Engineering Department at UC Berkeley. For more information, please see our research page or download our research booklet .
Yesterday we welcomed Prof. Katsura and his research group from Keio University for the 1st International Workshop between UC Berkeley and Keio University. We heard 10 great speakers give presentations on their research. We then wrapped up the day with a pizza party in our newly renovated office. (Pictures of our new office coming soon!)
The MSC Lab is pleased to announce that Evan Chang-Siu was nominated for the best paper award at the Intelligent Robotics and Systems 2011 conference for "A Lizard-Inspired Active Tail Enables Rapid Maneuvers and Dynamic Stabilization in a Terrestrial Robot." His collaborative work with CiBER has also been featured in Nature.
