Come explore robotics research, lab tours, and more at Maryland Robotics Day!

Next Friday, Oct. 25, the University of Maryland will be offering tours of 18 robotics laboratories and providing demonstrations of new and ongoing robotic research at Maryland Robotics Day. This no-charge open house showcases the wide range of robotics research taking place in the Maryland Robotics Center.

On display will be Robo Raven III, a robotic bird with independently flapping solar cell wings. You’ll also be able to see MINIR, a surgical robot that could help remove hard-to-reach brain tumors. R2G2 is the fastest limbless robot in the open literature, exploiting a rectilinear gait. TinyTerps are micro robots that coordinate and collaborate. The Robotics Center’s YouTube channel will give you a preview of the robots in action.

Robotics Day has two tracks in 2013. The morning track is for high school students and school groups. The afternoon track is for industry and government professionals. You’ll have plenty of time to speak with robotics faculty and students about their research, and explore future collaborations.

For more information and register for Maryland Robotics Day, visit the event website. The event is part of Mpact Week, sponsored by the A. James Clark School of Engineering, which also includes the Fischell Festival of Bioengineering, technology transfer events, and a Whiting-Turner Lecture on medical robotics.

Please pass along this invitation to any of your colleagues who are interested in robotics.
