Assembly line workers won’t be swapping stories with their robotic counterparts any time soon, but future robots will be more aware of the humans they’re working alongside. With support from the National Science Foundation, roboticist and aerospace engineer Julie Shah and her team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are developing next generation assembly line robots that are smarter and more adaptable than robots available on today’s assembly lines. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
