Unless otherwise noted, all seminars are held in room 1116 in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building from 12-1 p.m. Seminars are open to the public.
Dan Moroni, Product Strategist at Liquid Robotics, presents on his work as part of the RIM Seminar Series.
The presentation will go through the details of the Wave Glider and how Liquid Robotics (LRI) is working to build a platform to enable others to do ocean research without the high costs and risks of conducting ocean operations. Moroni will cover some of the challenges LRI has encountered building a persistant ocean robot and convincing some of the world's largest industries to shift how they do ocean operations. Amy Rubsamen will talk about the PacX mission and the record breaking trans-atlantic crossing.
Strategic research is at the heart of the Robotics & Intelligent Machines Center (RIM). Emphasizing personal and everyday robotics, as well as industry and defense automation, our researchers are defining the future role of robotics in society. RIM leverages the strengths and resources of Georgia Tech by reaching across traditional boundaries to embrace a multidisciplinary approach. The College of Computing, College of Engineering, and the Georgia Tech Research Institute play key, complementary roles in strategically engaging Georgia Tech’s expertise in the diverse field of robotics. Additionally, RIM manages a multidisciplinary PhD program in robotics that is jointly administered by the Colleges of Computing and Engineering.
