GSGC Funded Activities 2014 – 2015

Open Robotics Laboratory for Undergraduate/Graduate Students to Promote Hands-on Research

With funding support from Georgia Space Grant Consortium and Mercer University, the Open Robotics Laboratory (Machine Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory, MIRL) was developed in the new Science and Engineering Building with work benches, equipment, consumable materials, and large open floor space for experiments. The Laboratory is open to any student with interests in robotics or intelligent machines. Students can walk into the lab and start on predefined small projects, larger projects with other members, research projects led by senior undergraduate or graduate student, or their own projects.

Robotics Workshop for Middle Georgia First Robotics Teams

The Robotics workshops for students and coordinators cover all aspects of the FIRST Robotics Competition. Students learn sensor characteristics and sensor fusion and their relationship to actuators in the context of autonomous programming, students gain ideas and strategies on how they could solve or improve on previous year's designs.

Fellowships to Promote Innovative Graduate/Undergraduate Research and to Promote NASA

The fellowships are awarded to Mercer undergraduate and graduate students in STEM majors to promote research in NASA aligned topics such as Neural Networks, unmanned vehicles, acoustic localization in sensor networks, embedded systems, robotics, etc.
