Professor Sangbae Kim co-teaches the iconic undergraduate robot-building class 2.007, one of the first hands-on classes to teach students not only how to design an object but also how to build one.
Researchers in Professor Kim's Biomimetics Robotics Lab have trained their robotic cheetah to see and jump over hurdles as it runs — making this the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously.
Associate Professor Sangbae Kim describes his cutting-edge research in the area of biomimetics, the study of biological systems as models for the design and engineering of robots.
