Major Centers

The National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) was established in 1996 as the commercialization arm of the RI, and has been very successful at applying robotics technology to commercial and defense applications. The RI and NREC also develop curricula and software for using robots in K-12 and college education.


The Field Robotics Center (FRC) has developed a number of significant robots, including Sandstorm and H1ghlander, which finished second and third in the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge, and Boss, which won the 2007 DARPA Grand Challenge.

Famous quotes containing the words centers and/or major:

    [Madness] is the jail we could all end up in. And we know it. And watch our step. For a lifetime. We behave. A fantastic and entire system of social control, by the threat of example as effective over the general population as detention centers in dictatorships, the image of the madhouse floats through every mind for the course of its lifetime.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    The more you stay in this kind of job, the more you realize that a public figure, a major public figure, is a lonely man.
    Richard M. Nixon (1913–1995)
