The annual Robotics Open House will be on Friday, April 7, 2017, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., with all the robotics research labs open for school groups, families, and individuals to view interactive demonstrations to learn about how the next generation of robots will help society in health, manufacturing, education, environmental protection, communication, and homeland security. Demonstrations include research on how swarms of drones communicate to one another autonomously, how underwater robots help protect the oceans, how brain circuitry gives researchers insights into building and programming robots, and how difficult but useful it is to make robots walk instead of roll. There will also be a premiere of the short film, When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, about how a child with autism breaks out of his imaginary worlds thanks to a friendship with a robot.
