Mission: To develop novel, safe, and efficient robotic systems by looking at biology as a source of design inspiration and as the environment for interaction. 

Vision: We believe that the challenge of robotics of the future lies in safe human-robot interaction. This implies a totally different set of design requirements than for robots for the structured factory environment. Not necessarily high speeds and position accuracy, but rather sensitivity ("tenderness") and compliance. Such requirements motivate us to study biology, not only as the environment that the robot must interact with, but also as a source of design inspiration.
