Robots Showcase Their Skills at NIST Alaskan Events

Make room, Bender, Rosie and R2D2! Your newest mechanical colleagues are a few steps closer to reality, thanks to lessons learned during two robotics events hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) at the recent IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Anchorage, Alaska. The events””the Virtual Manufacturing Automation Competition (VMAC) and the Mobile Microrobotics Challenge (MMC)””were designed to prove the viability of advanced technologies for robotic automation of manufacturing and microrobotics.
