Autonomous Systems Testbed for Education and Research over interdisciplinary areas
John Hurtado (Texas A&M University)

The key elements of our program are excitement and exposure: we aim to excite undergraduate students about the possibilities in Engineering, and we aim to expose undergraduate students to our testbed of robotic vehicles (in the spirit of NASA's Robotics Education Project). Our testbed currently consist of a heterogeneous team of interacting robots (e.g., Roombas, LEGO mindstorm satellites, and omni-directional vehicles). The Robots are programmable platforms, outfitted with actuators and sensors.
