BioDesign Team


The UF ASME BioDesign team is creating a robotic lower-body exoskeleton to compete at the ACE competition. During the ACE Competition, a 25lb weight will be placed on the back of the exoskeleton. The pilot will be asked to do tasks such as walking on a balance beam, following marked footsteps, traversing uneven terrain, hopping over a short wall, kicking down a door, and crouch walking. The competition will also evaluate the time it takes to put on and take off the exoskeleton, design and material decisions, and cardio performance with and without the suit. All UF students are welcome to join our group to learn more about exoskeletons and how we’re designing them.

For the Spring 2024 semester, the Exoskeleton Design Team meets Monday from 5:00-7:00 PM.
