Siddharth has successfully defended his MS thesis work, entitled “Design Optimization of Wheel-and-Leg Transformable Robot with Passive Actuation,” today. Congratulations!
We are conducting a research project funded by National Science Foundation for testing a new computer-based games for cognitive assessment and looking for your participation!
If you are at the age of 18 or older without a history of stroke, other neurological diseases, or severe vision/hearing issues with aid and capable of using at least one hand for comfortably manipulating an object of a cubic inch size block, you might be eligible to participate in this study.
Participation will involve you completing a set of tests that will measure your short-term memory, hand-eye coordination, and cognitive problem-solving skills and questionnaires that will assess your experience. The entire assessment will occur in Human Clinical Research Facility at Texas A&M University, located at 675 John Kimbrough Blvd, College Station, TX77840, or Fermier Hall, Room 005B, located in 106 Ross St., College Station, TX 77843.
If you are interested in participating in this study or have questions, please call me at 979-458-6479 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, at your earliest convenience. Appointments will be scheduled at your convenience between the hours of 9AM – 5PM, Monday, three days a week (M/W/F).
Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. Thank you!

Prof. Lee and her team starts a new DARPA OFFSET Sprint 5 project (PI: Kiju Lee, 04/03/20 – 04/02/21) to develop an adaptive Wheel-and-Leg Transformable Robot (α-WaLTR) for versatile locomotion in urban military environments. The 9-month base period will focus on technical development and experimental evaluation of the new hardware platform; and the next 3-month optional period will focus on system-level integration with the existing platform technologies developed by Swarm Systems Integrators.

[Closed] Summer graduate RA positions available (May 15 – August 14, 2020)
ART Lab is seeking for highly motivated
upper-level undergraduate and graduate students interested in mechanism design, robot development, and control for swarm robotic applications. The RAs will work on a highly intensive, short-term project developing mobile robots with versatile locomotion capabilities. Please see below for required and preferred skills.
- Proficient CAD skills (required)
- Proficient programming skills in MATLAB, Python, and/or C++ (required)
- Demonstrated teamwork skills (preferred)
- Experience with UNITY or ROS (preferred)
- BS in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering or Computer Science (required)
- MS in relevant engineering disciplines (preferred)
- US citizenship (preferred)
If you are interested, please send the following materials to Prof. Kiju Lee: CV or Resume including the list of courses taken relevant to the project and GPA and a name and contact information of one reference. The positions will be open until filled. Please see below for recent announcements associated with this post.
- [Updates on 05-01-2020] Undergraduate students are not allowed to be on TAMU campus, and therefore undergraduate RA positions are no longer available.
Our new website is now open. Stay tuned for more information about our research projects!
