Nearly $50 million in research funding awarded by NSF

atients with incomplete lower spinal cord injuries, specifically the use of a body-weight assisted robotic treadmill that provides a realistic walking experience in a safe and flexible virtual environment. The "Treadport" overcomes limitations of current rehabilitation treadmills, which are too dissimilar from everyday walking and therefore limit a patient's recovery. It works with the patient's walking speed and effort, resistance to falling by strengthening and training a patient to unexpected perturbations and arm swing coordination, critical to normal walking.

Robust, highly-mobile MEMS micro-robots based on integration of piezoelectric and polymer materials
University of Michigan Ann Arbor (Kenn Oldham)

This project focuses on developing tiny, millimeter or sub-millimeter scale robots (smaller than fleas) whose skeletal system is composed of crystal and ceramic, which makes them highly maneuverable with stronger, mini muscles. Prototypes will be developed, tested and perfected. These micro-robots could be eventually used to get into hard-to-reach places, and to crawl around to observe things up close or to complete a task. Applications range from exploration to surveillance, from observation to micro-surgery.

Spacial Primitives for Enabling Situated Human-Robot Interaction
University of Southern California (Maja Mataric)

This research centers on the creation of "social robotics"--that is, robots that interact in appropriate social ways as understood by humans, which may include deference to personal or social space, appropriate gestures and the use of verbal and physical comments. This project focuses on answering the question: how do social (speech and gesture), environmental (loud noises and low lighting), and personal (hearing and visual impairments) factors influence positioning and communication between humans and co-robots, and how should a co-robot adjust its social behaviors to maximize human perc
