Programmable and Reconfigurable Soft Engineered Systems
PARSES (PI Kris Dorsey) is a multi-disciplinary group at Northeastern University in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (College of Engineering) and Physical Therapy, Movement, and Rehabilitation Sciences (PTMRS, Bouvé College of Health Sciences).
We work on challenges related to the design and engineering of soft robots and wearable devices. Some of the challenges we tackle in our work include:
Reconfiguring and tuning soft structure performance
Sensing the deformation of soft robots
Enhancing selectivity in soft mechanical sensors
