Advanced Intelligent SystemsKaushik Jayaram's bioinspired robotics are on the cover of the latest issue of the journal Advanced Intelligent Systems.

The article, "Design of CLARI: A Miniature Modular Origami Passive Shape-Morphing Robot," discusses the design and creation of Jayaram's compliant legged articulated robotic insect.

Jayaram is an assistant professor in the Robotics Program and the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is an expert in robotics and systems design, materials, and work at the micro and nanoscale.

The cover shows a 2.59 gram, 3.4 cm long, modular origami robot capable of passive shape morphing.

These tiny robots provide unique abilities to access confined environments and have potential for applications such as search-and-rescue and high-value asset inspection.
