Mutka, Xi, Pierre, and Farrell awarded NSF grant

Matt Mutka (CSE), Ning Xi (ECE), Percy Pierre (ECE) and Patricia Farrell (College of Education), in collaboration with Howard University, have been awarded a new grant from the NSF.

The project is entitled "CI-TEAM Demonstration Project for Real-Time Interactive and Collaborative Cyberinfrastructure for Teaching and Training of Hands-On Nanotechnology."

By using advances in Internet and robotics technology, this project will enable new and innovative methods of teaching and training university students and professionals involved with nanotechnology.

People at different geographical locations may work or learn together to control a remote nanomanufacturing system or scientific instruments based on haptic feedback in addition to video and audio.
