Robotics and Assistive Technology: A Win-Win Scenario
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The Robotics and Assistive Technology (RAT) Team is a research collaboration between the University of Missouri-Columbia's Adaptive Computing Technology (ACT) Center and the College of Engineering's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This collaboration has given engineering faculty and students fresh insights into person-centered technology research and development. Project outcomes benefit a unique population of persons with severe mobility impairments. Such projects have included electromyographic control mechanisms for power wheelchair and mobile phone devices. Current research is focusing on semiautonomous aides to daily living. This session will explore what made it work.
