  2. Kaveh Akbari Hamed, ECE Research Fellow, holds the stop mechanism while testing MARLO, a bipedal robot, in a lab located in the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering Building on November 20, 2013.

    MARLO is the successor in EECS Professor Jessy W. Grizzle’s research group to MABEL, another bipedal robot that is being retired to be displayed in the Chicago Field Museum.

    Hamed and members of Grizzle’s research group test the robot, making minute adjustments to improve its ability to walk in hopes of having applications in human prosthetics and the general robotics community.

  7. Ann Arbor - a test bed for driverless cars? 

    University of Michigan researchers work to make Ann Arbor the first American city with a shared fleet of connected and driverless vehicles by 2021. The cars of the future are to be much safer than the cars driven by humans, they will be battery operated and tailored to the needs of a particular trip.

  12. Steve Vozar, ME PhD Student, tests one of the Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) he is working on in the HH Dow Building on October 15, 2013

    Traditionally, unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) are tele-operated with a joystick, and with real-time video feedback information gathered from a camera on the UGV. When there isn’t a direct line-of-sight from the operator to the UGV, the operator can get disoriented, making tele-operation challenging. However, new research shows that supplementing video feedback with augmented reality — a computer-generated view of a physical, real-world environment — can improve UGV tele-operation.
