  15. MABEL, once dubbed the world’s fasted running bipedal robot, has served her tenure as the primary research robot of U-M engineering professor Jessy Grizzle, and now sits in the biomechanics exhibit at the Chicago Field Museum.

    Prof. Grizzle, a Elmer G. Gilbert Distinguished University Professor and Jerry W. and Carol L. Levin Professor of Engineering with appointments in the EECS and Mechanical Engineering departments at U-M, developed MABEL in coordination with  Jonathan Hurst of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon.  Grizzle is now working (again with Hurst) on MARLO, his next generation bipedal robot.
