A welcome from our friendliest robot, CARLA

Welcome to the CARIS Lab Wiki!

This wiki is intended for members of the CARIS group. If you're looking for our public page, please go here. This wiki contains useful orientation information and other lab references. We are a part of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of British Columbia

This is a collaborative venture! If you have an idea to improve the wiki, please do it!

Note: to improve your wiki viewing and editing experience, you can adjust "my preferences" (tab located at top of screen). For example, under Preferences->misc you can change whether headings apprear auto-numbered or not. You can also change the wiki's skin.
