During the Pandemic, robot applications were increasingly used in pharmaceuticals,
and packaging industry. One Statler College project uses an aerial robot to
create 3D maps for assessing pillar and roof damage in mines. One USDA grant will
develop robot bees for pollination. Another grant from Amazon will use parallel
and cloud computing to develop autonomous mobile robots. One grant project
allows self-driving vehicles respond to mixed traffic environment.
Areas of robotics research at the Statler College can be found below and robotic
teams can be found at robotics.wvu.edu.
