  • Mars-bound NASA robot will get some help from Mass. universities

    Boston Business Journal - 04/07/2016

    At UMass Lowell and Northeastern, professors and students alike are already feeling giddy with the possibilities. “This is an effort to advance research and development in humanoid robotics,” said Taskin Padir, an associate professor at Northeastern University’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department and a co-principal investigator on the project. “Some will say humanoid robots are creepy, but I think they make a lot of sense.”

    Padir and his team of about 40 Northeastern students will focus on researching ways for the robot to navigate in crowded environments, walk on rough terrain, and grasp objects in cluttered areas.
