On Sept. 25, the Maryland Robotics Center celebrated its new Robotics Realization Lab (RRL) with an open house event that drew more than 100 people.
RRL Director and Associate Professor Sarah Bergbreiter (ME/ISR), ISR Director Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR) andMaryland Robotics Center Director S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR) welcomed visitors to the lab and explained its capabilities. Guests were then able to view a number of robotics demonstrations.
This lab is a multi-user facility that houses advanced human-safe robots for manufacturing and medical applications as well as mechanical and electrical rapid prototyping equipment to support the development of robot hardware not commercially available.
