PhD Advisor: Dr. C. David Remy
PhD Institution: University of Michigan
Areas of Expertise:
- Soft Robotic Sensors and Actuators
- Mechatronics and control
Wyatt's PhD dissertation focuses on the development of soft, self-sensing actuators. These actuators can be used in robots and human-assistance devices. The sensors rely on changes in inductance to measure actuator motion.
