Post-doctoral researchers Amanda Prorok and Philip Dames from the GRASP Lab participated in a demo shown at the DARPA Wait, What? forum in St. Louis, MO, from September 9th through September 11th, 2015. The demonstration showcased how collective robotics can contribute to the ‘Internet of Things’, and involved work from several institutions including the University of Michigan, University of Washington, UC Berkeley, CMU, and the University of Pennsylvania.
Wait, What? is a forum on future technologies … on their potential to radically change how we live and work, and on the opportunities and challenges these technologies will raise within the broadly defined domain of national security. Hosted by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and rooted in what’s already happening in today’s fastest evolving research fields, Wait, What? is designed to be a crucible for generating ideas that can stretch current conceptual horizons and accelerate the development of novel capabilities in the years and decades ahead.
