Mission and Core Values

The mission of Sun robotics lab at ASU is to advance science and technology in robotics for addressing grand societal challenges in manufacturing, daily life, and health care. We are a highly interdisciplinary research group with expertise in design, modeling, and control. A major focus of our current research is the study of robotic actuation such as developing and controlling artificial muscle and artificial-muscle-driven robots — a new generation of robots that are powerefficient, multifunctional, compliant, and autonomous in ways that are similar to biological organisms.

Our lab is a people-first lab with the core values of: respect, understanding, transparency, and supportive! We not only train junior robotics engineers and researchers to conduct research on robotics, but more importantly support them to have a better life!
