design for the developing world

general manufacturing + design

Prof. Sangbae Kim, MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering

- currently focusing mostly on redesigning the "MIT Mini Cheetah," --> design + docs paper

- working on a delta robot force sensor training platform (embedded software pipeline), 

developing motor testing platform from an electrical standpoint,

- developing design of a high-torque motor module from a mechanical design standpoint.
