Georgia Tech researchers will collaborate with TRI on two research projects: the first to advance autonomous vehicle testing and the second, to improve the way robots assist older adults with daily living tasks.
An interface system that uses augmented reality technology could help individuals with profound motor impairments operate a humanoid robot to feed themselves and perform routine personal care tasks.
Robots aren’t yet household fixtures, but Georgia Tech researchers have already come up with a way domestic bots might recognize materials around the home.
Four Georgia Tech faculty members were named IEEE Fellows, effective January 1, 2018. They are BME Professor Jaydev Desai, ECE Professors Saibal Mukhopadhyay and Justin Romberg, and GTRI Senior Research Engineer Kevin James “Jim” Sangston.
Luke Drnach and Katelyn Fry met through a first-of-its-kind traineeship in health care robotics offered by Georgia Tech and Emory University.
Georgia Tech and Emory faculty members are uniting to train the next generation of engineering students in healthcare robotics technologies, so they can better understand the changing needs of patients and their caregivers and healthcare providers.
