NSF grant allows researchers to explore use of co-robots in teaching

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Conrad Tucker, assistant professor of engineering design and industrial engineering, and Timothy Brick, assistant professor of human development and family studies, were awarded a National Robotics Initiative Grant of $342,574 from the National Science Foundation. Tucker and Brick are co-principal investigators on the three-year project titled, “Observation, Inference and Intervention: An Adaptive Co-robot System that Provides Individually Customized Performance Feedback Based on Students’ Affective States.” “This research will lead to a better understanding of how students interact and function with co-robots during potentially stressful activities,” said Tucker. Co-robots are robots that work side-by-side with humans, assisting them with tasks and adapting to their needs. The two-way exchange of knowledge between students and co-robots creates a relationship in which each party learns from the other in service…
