Research Activities

Microrobotic Fibre Handling and Characterization

We study and develop microrobotic technologies to measure various mechanical properties of individual natural and synthetic fibers in high throughput. The goal is to increase understanding on strength properties of different fibre-based products by developing micromechatronic, machine vision, software and control algorithm solutions.
