RNSL: Robotics and Neural Systems Laboratory

Welcome to the RNSL Homepage

                                               Our Mission

We are interested in understanding biological movement, vision and intelligence. 

We use non-traditional methods. We build simulations or models of systems in software and test them in hardware to try to understand their biological counterparts. This requires the integration of a large amount of information across the biological sciences and then the implementation of electrical and mechanical engineering techniques.

A secondary goal is to advance robotic theory. We often try to translate understanding derived from biology into new robotic methods that offer solutions to real world problems.
