The Nanorover Technology Task is a technology development effort to create very small (10-100s of grams) but scientifically capable robotic vehicles for planetary exploration, which can easily fit within the mass and/or volume constraints of future missions to asteroids, comets, and Mars.
The Neuroprosthesis Research Organization is a not for profit organization dedicated to supporting people who had to resort to chronic microsensor implants. We provide scientific information and education for patients, their families and friends. We raise funds for visual, auditory and sensorymotor neuroprosthesis and biomorphic robotics related research. Our Organization is also concerned with reporting results in the field of Sensorimotor Substitution and Neuroprosthesis.
Muscle Actuators Electroactive polymers (EAPs) are emerging as new actuation materials with capabilities that cannot be matched by striction-limited, rigid electroceramics, used to perform various tasks such as articulating spacecraft components.
The Robot World Cup Initiative (RoboCup) is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. For this purpose, RoboCup chose to use soccer game, and organize RoboCup: The Robot World Cup Soccer Games and Conferences.
The Seattle Robotics Society was formed in 1982 to serve those interested in learning about and building robots. We are a diverse group of professionals and amateurs, highschool students and college professors, engineers and tinkerers.
