U-M advocated for more funding for robot prototypes and hardware at NSF’s National Robotics Caucus event on June 9, 2016 in Washington, DC.

“It was very exciting to meet fellow robotics researchers and to share our work with members of Congress,” said Professor Jessy Grizzle, who appreciates all that the NRI has done for the field. ¬†However, he said that the actual robots are expensive, and the funding of the robots themselves, in addition to research and student support, is critical.
