Our students and researchers design and test a variety of robotic mechanisms. Mason is pushing the boundaries of electronic communication, applied computation, computer learning, and sensor networks, making us a leader in advanced robotic controls and design, and implementation. Read some of the stories about their activity and discoveries.
- January 8, 2021It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a Lighter-Than-Air (LTA) robotic shark blimp, which is what a team of George Mason University students and faculty used to participate in the 99++ Luftballoons Competition at Indiana University on November 9 through 13.
- November 11, 2019Our military members trek into dangerous territory on a daily basis, and sometimes their equipment can bring back unwanted remnants of the war zones they leave behind that can pose additional potential threats.
- October 16, 2019When Mason Engineering professor Cameron Nowzari was an undergraduate, all he wanted to do was design and build robots. He was especially interested in the idea of swarm robotics, in which large teams of robots are designed to cooperatively complete tasks that a single device might not be able to do alone.
- December 3, 2018It swims like a fish, turns like a fish, and dives like a fish, but it’s not a fish. It’s a robot. Three Mason Engineering seniors have created a robotic fish that can navigate water through wireless commands.
- February 2, 2015magine being dropped off in a new city without a map or your GPS. Think about how you would move around and not get lost. Most people would try to recognize landmarks and keep track of their turns and motions, so they can eventually reach their destination or can retrace their steps.
