NIU students collaborate with EIGERlab to build robot

Mechanism design and analysis students at NIU’s College of Engineering & Engineering Technology were  recently assigned a challenging project—create a six-legged walking robot complete with a Hoeckens Linkage to compete with fellow student teams. Post-design, they enlisted the services of Rockford-based EIGERlab to print
