We are a multi-disciplinar team with a common goal. After a lot of ideas which combines nature and technology we decided to focus our effort designing and building a robot prototype inspired in the armadillo, who’s able to roll up, walk and roll down for hills. Our goal is create this prototype and make it impact resistant to find future aplications. But always keeping in mind the nature as a background.
The Happy Feet team is:
Roos Hoogendijk – , I am 20 years old, and I am born and raised in the Netherlands. At my home institution in Amsterdam I study Bachelor Aviation Engineering. But I am currently studying abroad in Oslo to gain more international experience and broaden my basic field of knowledge besides aviation.
Benjamin Huau – I’m 21 years old and I come from France. My main study is the mechanical engineering but since last September I’m studying project management in my School in France but also in Oslo. I use to work with machines, I like hand work and I tend to be more practical than theoretical. This project is a good way to combine my skills with the funny part of the Bionic Engineering.
Sébastien Renault – I am studying Design and Management of Industrial Projects at the University of Angers in France. I’m used to design industrials products and work in project team. With the bionic engineering project, I can improve my general knowledge, discover a new way of work and gain an international experience.
Iza Stelmasiak – I’m studying Biotechnology in Technical University of Lodz in Poland. Even though the name Bionic engineering seems a bit similar to my field of science, it’s something completely different and new to me.
Adrià Villar – I’m a Industrial Designer from Sitges, formed at Escola Politècnica Superior d’Enginyeria a Vilanova i la Geltrú. I’m active, extrovert and curious. I like to draw and design, find easy solutions for common problems and work in international teams. Good at communicating, expressing and selling ideas making them easily understood. Interested in the eco-design and the user-centered design.
