School of Physics Nonlinear Science and Mathematical Physics Seminar Series: Presenting Jonathan Clark

Animals move with a level of grace, speed, and agility that, as of yet, eludes our best  attempts at robotic mimicry.  In this talk we will discuss the modeling and dynamics of rapid vertical ascension and review some recent efforts at instantiating these results into climbing robots.
