Powerbots restore power after disasters

Nonlinear and Autonomous Systems Lab has been featured in a few new articles:

“We want to have a robot that can universally serve different loads,” Mahmoudian said. …Mahmoudian also envisions more robots working together to deliver power.  “I’m thinking we ought to have 10 robots working together,” she said.  That would allow the system to accommodate different types of equipment needing power at different voltages.  “Having small robots, we are limited in the size of the power source they can carry,” she said.  “You might have robots that are extending the connection, and we can use robots connected to each other to deliver higher voltage.”
