Air Force Office of Scientific Research support of a Center of Excellence at Stanford University has provided the impetus and core for a major new entity, the Center for Automation and Manufacturing Science CAMS. Our goal is to make fundamental contributions to the underlying set of technologies that will enable the next generation of industrial robots to be far more capable than todays-will enable them to be lightweight, limber, deft, facile, quick, friendly, low-powered, seeing, sensing, thinking machines that can reason and strategize-can carry out tasks assigned at a high conceptual level. Specifically, our research focus is on fast, precise control of lightweight flexible manipulators, on sinsing especially optical and tactile sensing, on intelligent systems for robot task management, and on computer vision for robot management.
