Yirmibeşoğlu wins soft robotics competition
Doğan Yirmibeşoğlu, Ph.D. student in robotics, won the grand prize for for Contributions in Soft Robotics Research at the  2018 Soft Robotic Design Competition. His entry, a 3D silicone printer, adapts additive manufacturing to the soft robotics world. The team developed a micro-scale active mixing system for two-part materials, allowing successful 3D prints of two-part silicones, and eliminating the need for the laborious and time-consuming molding methods.
