Diagram Showing Fundamental Research that Enables Intelligent Co-Robot and Human-Robot Interaction (image) National Science Foundation Share Print E-Mail Caption The breadth of fundamental robotics research to be pursued is illustrated in this figure showing the technology space of the National Robotics Initiative. Topics range from cognition and knowledge representation to architectures and control mechanisms; perception; human-robot interaction, cooperation and adaptation; language understanding and production; multi-networked agents; mobility and manipulation; and human-connected cognitive prosthetics, exoskeletons and soft (non-rigid) structures. These areas are inclusive to this program, but by no means exclusive of others.
