Berkeley Talks: Learning from nature to design better robots

August 16, 2022

In Berkeley Talks episode 148, Robert Full, a professor of integrative biology and founder of the Center for Interdisciplinary Biological Inspiration in Education and Research at UC Berkeley, discusses how nature and its creatures — cockroaches, crabs, centipedes, geckos — inspire innovative design in all sorts of useful things, from bomb-detecting, stair-climbing robots to prosthetics and other medical equipment.

Full spoke in February 2022 as part of a speaker series sponsored by UC Berkeley’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
