Post from Jeffrey Winters:
Last year, Sunil K. Agrawal of the University of Delaware wrote an article for the magazine about his work building robots that help infants with mobility issues—specifically cerebral palsy—learn to move around and explore their world independently (see “Robots for Infants,” March 2011). The robots built by Agrawal and his colleague, Cole Galloway, were featured by the National Science Foundation at the annual USA Science & Engineering Festival at the Washington Convention Center this past weekend—ASME was there too, with its well-traveled “Heroes of Engineering” exhibit.
The University of Delaware recently produced a short video about Agrawal and Galloway’s work. Although it certainly doesn’t go into as much detail about the status and prospects of the project, it is almost infinitely cuter.
