NanoRobotics Lab Members Place 2nd at RoboCup 2007

Members of Prof. Metin Sitti's NanoRobotics Lab, PhD students Steven Floyd and Chytra Pawashe, won the second prize in the first RoboCup 2007 Nanogram Competition in Atlanta. This competition involved designing and building a custom micro-robot less than 300 micrometers that could pass obstacles and play soccer on a flat surface precisely with computer control.  Seven teams from around the world attended this competition.
