Two Atlanta HBCUs Participating in Major Robotics Research

Spelman College and Morehouse College, two historically black educational institutions in Atlanta, are participating in a five-year, $18.5 million grant program to work on robotic devices that interface with the human nervous system. The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington is leading the mult-institution consortium working on the National Science Foundation grant program.

The goal of the program is to develop new technologies to help people with spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, or sufferers of stroke or Parkinson’s disease.
