A Self-Feeding Robot
self feeding robot
People: Eduardo Torres-Jara


One of the most important aspects of living organisms is the fact that they are completely autonomous; they are able to survive without external help in their environments. Consequently, one of the main drives of living systems is to obtain the energy necessary for their operation from their environment. They do this by acquiring and processing food in a very efficient way.


The goal of this project is to build a robot that emulates the self-feeding behavior of a living organism.
