Northeastern’s Jerome Hajjar and colleagues are developing a sophisticated system that uses autonomous small flying robots coupled with 3-D imaging and state-of-the art planning, modeling, and analysis to inspect structures from bridges to buildings and automatically identify problems, track their progress, and assess the need for follow-up.
“An arm for a leg.” No, the line is not part of a bargaining exchange. It’s the catchy title of Thomas Reilly’s research poster at RISE:2016. Reilly, BHS’16, is devoted to […]
Northeastern and MIT are the only universities in the country chosen by NASA to perform advanced research and development work on humanoid robots—robots that could play a role in NASA’s plan to send astronauts to Mars.
Jerry Hajjar, professor and chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is helping to design an autonomous low-flying vehicle capable of understanding and predicting structural damage in unsafe and remote locations following disaster events and for longterm maintenance.
In senior capstone project, engineering students apply eye-tracking technology to design a robot that can help the disabled with household tasks
