New Project

Softworm crowdsourcing project (The Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach and the Neuromechanics and Biomimetic Devices Laboratory): “We focus on developing a social media platform for determining control strategies for robots. Users log on to our website and take turns controlling our robotic caterpillar, the Softworm, while we crowd source their strategies in order to create a genetic algorithm for the robot”.
