Recently, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and NASA jointly announced that they will invest $38 million to support the development of next-generation robots, developing Leverage robotic collaboration, and collaboration between robots and humans, to improve individual human capabilities, performance, and safety. This is the second round of investment in the National Robotics Initiative (NRI), part of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership launched by the Obama administration two years ago. Funded projects include research in advanced manufacturing of collaborative robots (human collaborators) and civil and environmental infrastructure, healthcare and rehabilitation, military and homeland security, space and subsea exploration, food production, processing and marketing, quality of life improvement and Robots in areas such as driving safety. The National Science Foundation (NSF) will invest $31 million over the next three years to fund 30 new projects that advance the science of robotics across multiple sectors. Future research will include improving robotic locomotion—facilitating bipedal mobility, dexterous robotic manipulation, and prosthetics - Robotic sensing, etc., in order to improve theories, models and algorithms to share and analyze data and information generated by the interaction between robots and humans, and between robots and other robots. Another purpose of the project is to enhance 3-D printing technology, develop interactive co-bots, improve robot training, improve the capabilities of surgical robots, and provide assistive robots for people with disabilities. In addition, the project will improve the robot's ability to lift and carry heavy objects and perform dangerous and complex tasks such as search and rescue during disaster relief.
