BiographyHarshal A. Sonar is currently pursuing his PhD in robotics and control at Reconfigurable Robotics Lab (RRL), EPFL. He has received his Master of Technology (M.Tech.) in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay with specialization in control and computing. He has previously worked on design and optimization multi-agent VTOF robot (quadcopters) testbed to study co-operative behavior in outdoor environments. His current research focuses on development of novel sensors, actuators and control schemes using soft materials for wearable interactive robots.
