Polytechnic team among finalists in NASA’s Space Robotics Challenge Phase 2

Because of inhospitable living conditions in outer space, some of the galaxy’s next explorers will be robots. To ascertain the caliber of the world’s robotics experts, the Centennial Challenges Program at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) teamed with the Space Center Houston, the official visitor center of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, for the Space Robotics Challenge. A team led by Byung-Cheol “B.C.” Min, associate professor in Purdue Polytechnic’s Department of Computer and Information Technology, is a finalist in NASA’s robotics challenge.

Robotics researchers attend IEEE conference

Richard Voyles, associate dean for research and professor of electrical engineering technology, attended the  annual IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems in Chicago in September.

He was joined by his graduate students from the Collaborative Robotics Lab (CRL). Ph.D. student Yanzhe Cui presented his paper titled, "ReFrESH: A Self-Adaptation Framework to Support Fault Tolerance in Field Mobile Robots."
