Maryland Robotics Day is a free event designed to acquaint you with the University of Maryland's many robotics research projects, faculty, students and facilities. We will introduce you to the Maryland Robotics Center and give you the opportunity to tour our labs, visit with faculty and students, and see our research in action.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR STUDENTS! Please do not register--just stop by our information table when you arrive on campus on September 21. No registration is necessary for students, parents, or teachers in 2012.
You'll see research in:
Collaborative, Cooperative, Networked Robotics: bio-inspired robotics concepts, time-delayed robotics, robotic swarms, robotic cooperation under limited communication, and distributed robotics.
Medical Robotics: MRI-compatible surgical robotics, haptics-enabled AFM, exoskeletons for rehabilitation, and magnetic micromanipulation for drug delivery.
Miniature Robotics: mesoscale robots; bio-inspired sensing, actuation, and locomotion; cell manipulation (optical, AFM based, and micro fluidics); and micro and nano manipulation (optical and magnetic).
Robotics for Extreme Environments: space robotics and autonomous deep-submergence sampling systems.
Unmanned Vehicles: micro air vehicles, unmanned sea surface vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles, and planetary surface rovers.
Check back throughout the summer for updates on lab tours and demonstrations.
