Robotics: The Past, The Present, The Future

Jingang Yi (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering)
Kostas Bekris (Computer Science)

Most people know that robots are automated machines that do our bidding, including cleaning our floors, building our cars, and traveling millions of miles to other planets to do our research on alien environments. In this seminar we will explore both the hardware aspects of a robot (including structure, function, components, and materials), and the software side of robotics (the brains behind how a robot functions). Of course, no robotics course would be complete without the fun of building robots in the lab, so anticipate that too! In this interactive seminar, you will find out what is out there in the commercial world of robotics as well as what is being developed in the university.
