Options: Volunteer Basis, Potential for UROP Funding, Potential for Work-Study Funding, Potential for Academic Credit
The Neuromorphics Lab (http://nl.bu.edu/) studies biological intelligence with the goal of creating robots that come closer to animals in their ability to perceive, think, and act upon their environment. The lab, funded by several agencies including NASA, NSF, DARPA, and private companies, has projects in the following areas:
– sensory perception
– decision making
– human-robot interaction
Applications range from land robots, to flying robots, to self-driving cars.
