Welcome to the Multi-Scale Robotics & Automation Lab (MSRAL) located in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. The MSRAL performs cutting-edge research on robotic and automation systems at various length scales: macro-scale (cm to m), meso-scale (~100's of um to a few mm's), micro-scale (10's of um to 100's of um), and nano-scale (nm). Research areas of focus are multi-scale robotic manipulation and assembly tasks, mobile micro/nano robotics, bio-nano robotics, mechatronics, robotic system integration, medical robotics and devices, MEMS device design and fabrication to aid in robotics and automation tasks, automation for the life sciences, and m
icro/nano aerial and ground vehicle design & control.
