NSF Grant to Support Research on Robotic Cutting of Soft Items

September 1, 2016

With a great promise for relieving people from daily chores, home robots point to a bright future of providing affordable assistance to the growing elderly population and to people with disabilities in spite of  the rising costs of health care. This project by Dr. Yan-Bin Jia will aim at the development of a robotic system specialized on cutting delicate, flexible, and slippery items such as fruits, vegetables, and meats, with the possession of knife skills including slice, dice, and chop.
