Award List:

In-Situ Training of Anthropomorphic Robots

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: David Handelman, President
Award Amount: $68,512.00
Abstract:
The control technology under development enables human operators to teach anthropomorphic robots, in the field, how to perform new complex tasks. Building upon existing inverse kinematics, rule-based control, and neural network learning technology, the training method enhances robot capabilities… More

In Situ Training of Robonaut for In-Space Assembly, Maintenance and Servicing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: David Handelman, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,698.00
Abstract:
The goal of the proposed FieldTrainer control system is to enable astronauts to teach Robonaut on-orbit how to perform new complex tasks using EVA tools. Employing a show-and-tell approach to robot training, the control system acquires rule-based task plans through verbal dialog between robot and… More

Dexterous All-Terrain Biped

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David Handelman, President
Award Amount: $69,957.00
Abstract:
The objective of the proposed project is to determine the feasibility and efficacy of using a two-legged, two-armed robot for inspection and EOD tasks. The project builds upon an agile two-legged platform currently under development for DARPA. The Tactical All-Terrain Biped (T/ATB) is intended to… More

Agile and Dexterous Robot for Inspection and EOD Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David Handelman, President
Award Amount: $729,694.00
Abstract:
The EOD All-Terrain Biped (ATB) is a robotic platform with wheels, legs and arms capable of driving, crawling, walking and manipulating objects for inspection and explosive ordnance disposal tasks. Advanced limb coordination technology provides independen
