Register today! Maryland Robotics Day—Sept. 9, 2011Because you registered for Maryland Robotics Day last year, we’re sending you a special advance invitation to our second robotics event, Friday, Sept. 9, 2011. This no-charge showcase again will explore the wide range of robotics research taking place in the Maryland Robotics Center. Register today at: http://www.eng.umd.edu/html/survey/robotics-day/gov.html.Your day will begin on campus in College Park, Md., at 10 a.m. You’ll learn about the Maryland Robotics Center, hear a keynote address by a robotics industry expert, visit the university’s 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.You’ll see projects related to the Maryland Robotics Center’s five main research areas:--- 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.To register for this no-cost event, visit http://www.eng.umd.edu/html/survey/robotics-day/gov.html.We are currently putting together the website with locations, parking information, lab tours, demonstrations and more. We’ll let you know when it goes live! In the meantime, learn more about the Maryland Robotics Center at http://robotics.umd.edu.Maryland Robotics Day is co-sponsored by the Institute for Systems Research and the Maryland Robotics Center, units within the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland. We look forward to seeing you on Sept. 9!
