      Join us this Wednesday for an exciting demonstration on rolling robot platforms.

      Dr. Khalid M. Al-Ali, Senior Fellow and Director of Robotics at Carnegie Mellon
      University, will showcase an example of their new MAX rover - a inexpensive
      camera-based robot currently used by NASA Ames for intelligent and adaptive
      robotics/avionics research and development. This robot has stereo vision
      cameras, sensors all around, and can be operated remotely - all in a nice small
      R/C truck sized platform!

      The CMU group developed software components that can be easily integrated -
      their aim is to enable users to test different behavior-based algorithms on
      actual robots with minimal time investment in learning the details of the robot
      and robot specific programming environments. In addition to NASA, the low-cost,
      high performance robot platform is also being used by high school students and
      colleges - but can also be made into a great hobbyist platform. This past
      summer students built their own robots from kits in just a few weeks at CMU's
      RoboCamp West.

      Even if you don't want to build one, it's a great robot to come and see!

      Venue:

      San Francisco State University
      1600 Holloway St
