Hello fellow ARTSI colleagues. My name is Jonecia Keels but everyone just calls me NeeCee . I am a rising sophomore at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. I am a dual-degree Computer Science/Software Engineering major. This summer I am working with Dr. Ayanna Howard at Georgia Institute of Technology (GA Tech). Our main focus is to create robots to assist in healthcare. For example, a robot that can aid elderly people retrieve objects or a robot that can interact and play with autistic children. My specific task is to build a Manoi AT01 humanoid robot with another colleague and program it. This humanoid is extremely advance. It can run at high speeds, stand up when it falls, and can even balance on one leg . This task sounds simple enough however it is not. The entire manual, all 112 pages, is in Japanese because the Manoi has not been released in America. Also the Manoi comes with a tremendous amount of tiny pieces and screws . One mistake can cause the Manoi to not function. Despite the difficulty, this task is going to be fun, exciting, and intellectually stimulating.
Here are links with more information on the Manoi AT01:
