Dr. Henry Medeiros recieves NIST grant to study mobile robotic manipulators

Dr. Henry Medeiros, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, received an award from the National Institute of Standards and Technology for a three-year project titled "Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators using Coarse-to-Fine Deep Learning Methods." This project has the potential to significantly increase the applicability of mobile robotic manipulators. In addition, this project will advance the understanding, in qualitative and quantitative terms, of the applicability of state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to industrial mobile robotic manipulation tasks.
