Authored by Ph.D. student Feifei Qian, "Walking and Running on Yielding and Fluidizing Ground" has been awarded the Best Student Paper at the Robotics Science & Systems (RSS) 2012 meeting in Sydney, Australia.

Qian is advised by Daniel Goldman, and the paper discusses his work with the detailed locomotor mechanics of a small, lightweight robot (DynaRoACH, 10 cm, 25 g), revealing a mechanism by which small animals can achieve high performance on granular substrates, which also advances the design and control of small robots in deformable terrains.
