Pallone Announces Nearly 2 Million in Research Grants to Rutgers

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) announced that Rutgers University has been awarded two National Science Foundation grants for robotics and prosthetic research.

The first grant of $682,646 is for a project entitled “S&AS: FND: Reflective Learning of Stochastic Physical Models for Robust Manipulation,” and will help develop the use of robots in everyday life.

The second grant is for $1,182,466 and entitled “CHS: Medium: Data Driven Biomechanically Accurate Modeling of Human Gait on Unconstrained Terrain”. The grant will focus on research to improve prosthetic legs.

“Rutgers is continually at the cutting edge of groundbreaking research,” said Pallone. “I’m excited to see how Rutgers continues to build on its work in robotics and prosthetics right here in New Jersey.”

Last week, Pallone announced that Rutgers University had been awarded a grant of $426,161 to enable-robots to assist with human operators in education, medical assistance, agriculture, and manufacturing applications.
