Carnegie Mel­lon re­searcher wins top prize in ro­bot­ics

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - - Business -

Carnegie Mel­lon Univer­sity re­searcher Matthew T. Ma­son, known for his work in robotic ma­nip­u­la­tion, has been awarded the 2018 IEEE Ro­bot­ics and Au­to­ma­tion Award, a top prize in the field. The In­sti­tute of Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics En­gi­neers, a pro­fes­sional or­ga­ni­za­tion head­quar­tered in New York City, has pre­sented the award since 2004 to rec­og­nize con­tri­bu­tions in ad­vanc­ing fields of in­ter­est to IEEE. Mr. Ma­son, for­mer di­rec­tor of CMU's Ro­bot­ics In­sti­tute, is be­ing hon­ored for his con­tri­bu­tions in robotic ma­nip­u­la­tion, or how ro­bots can plan move­ments to grasp a given ob­ject. Much of that work, in­clud­ing an origami-fold­ing ro­bot and a fo­cus on robotic hands, has been through his Ma­nip­u­la­tion Lab.
