Gramopadhye profile

“As engineers and scientists, we have long realized and appreciated the importance of the diversity of people, approaches and ideas, and the rich discourse it generates. When we challenge one another's viewpoints in a robust, healthy exchange of ideas, we come to the richer, more impactful solutions that can solve the issues we face.”

    Teaching Robots Manners

    Ioannis Karamouzas of Clemson University wants to teach robots manners. The research focuses on helping indoor, mobile robots coexist with humans in populated areas, such as homes and workspaces. He also plans to visit K-12 schools across South Carolina to expose students to robotics, a step toward creating a college-going culture in economically disadvantaged areas and drumming up interest in STEM careers.
