Maryland Robotics Day
Friday, September 9, 2011

10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
A. James Clark School of Engineering
Friday, September 9, 2011

The University of Marylandís second Maryland Robotics Day will showcase the wide range of robotics research taking place in the Maryland Robotics Center.

You'll see research in:
*Collaborative, Cooperative, Networked Robotics: bio-inspired robotics concepts, time-delayed robotics, robotic swarms, robotic cooperation under limited communication, and distributed robotics.
*Medical Robotics: MRI-compatible surgical robotics, haptics-enabled AFM, exoskeletons for rehabilitation, and magnetic micromanipulation for drug delivery.
*Miniature Robotics: mesoscale robots; bio-inspired sensing, actuation, and locomotion; cell manipulation (optical, AFM based, and micro fluidics); and micro and nano manipulation (optical and magnetic).
*Robotics for Extreme Environments: space robotics and autonomous deep-submergence sampling systems.
*Unmanned Vehicles: micro air vehicles, unmanned sea surface vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles, and planetary surface rovers.

Registration is required by September 7, 2011.  Registration is free but needed to plan for parking and box lunches. Your day will begin on campus in College Park, Md., at 10 a.m. Youíll learn about the Maryland Robotics Center, hear a keynote address by a robotics industry expert, visit the universityís robotics labs and see demonstrations of our robots in action. There will be plenty of time to speak with robotics faculty, students and researchers about their research, and explore future collaborations.
