|NREC's Robotic Paint-stripping System Is Edison Award Winner|
May 06, 2013. A robotic paint-stripping system being developed by Carnegie Mellon University's National Robotics Engineering Center and Concurrent Technologies Corporation of Johnstown, Pa., was named a Gold winner in the materials science category of the 2013 Edison Awards, announced April 25 at an awards ceremony in Chicago.
|Human-Scale CHIMP Robot Has Four Limbs, But Moves Like a Tank|
March 12, 2013. A team from Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center is building a new class of robot to compete in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Robotics Challenge — a human-size robot that moves, not by walking, but on rubberized tracks on the extremities of each of its four limbs. Though the appearance of the CMU Highly Intelligent Mobile Platform, or CHIMP, is vaguely simian, its normal mode of locomotion will be much like that of a tank, with the tracks of all four limbs on the ground.
|CMU To Develop Robots for Anglo American PLC|
January 09, 2013. Carnegie Mellon University has signed a five-year master agreement with one of the world’s largest mining companies, London-based Anglo American PLC, to develop robotic technologies for mining.
|NREC and CTC To Develop Paint-Stripping System for Aircraft|
November 26, 2012. Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) and Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) of Johnstown, Pa., are working with the Air Force Research Laboratory and Ogden Air Logistics Center 309 AMXG to develop and demonstrate a robotic system that uses high-powered lasers to remove coatings from fighter and cargo aircraft.
|Two CMU Teams to Compete in DARPA Robotics Challenge|
October 24, 2012. Roboticists at Carnegie Mellon University will field two teams in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Robotics Challenge, a competition in which robots will perform complex, physically challenging tasks as they respond to disaster scenarios in human-engineered environments, such as nuclear power plants.
|RI Software Helps Guide Curiosity Rover|
August 09, 2012. Now that NASA has successfully landed its Curiosity rover on Mars, a version of Carnegie Mellon University navigation software will help guide the robot during its mission to determine if Mars ever could have supported life. The software is a version of Field D*, which was first developed at the Robotics Institute in 2000 by Tony Stentz, now director of the National Robotics Engineering Center. Stentz will discuss CMU's contributions to the mission on KDKA-TV's "Sunday Business Page" at 6:30 a.m. Aug. 12.
|Carnegie Robotics Partners With NREC To Make Components, Systems|
August 30, 2010. Carnegie Mellon University announces the launch of a new firm, Carnegie Robotics LLC, which will develop, manufacture and service robotic components and systems in partnership with the university’s highly successful National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC).
|Carnegie Mellon Developing Automated Systems To Enable Precision Farming of Apples, Oranges|
November 19, 2008. Two groups of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute have received a total of $10 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to build automated farming systems.
