Mark's research interests began with modular robots that are made up of identical active components that can be arranged to form many different configurations, ranging from a snake robot to a humanoid. These systems can also self-reconfigure, changing the robot's shape to suit the task. In addition, Mark has branched into small flying robots and low cost mechanisms, robot art and health care.
