NIH Funds Cooperative Robot Research Projects

JAMA. 2016;315(4):336. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.18554

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is giving a boost to the development of robots that help humans. The NIH has awarded grants to 3 researchers who are developing different types of assistive robots, known as cooperative robots, or co-robots (http://1.usa.gov/1TwM2QL). The NIH grants, totaling $2.2 million subject to fund availability over the next 5 years, are part of the National Robotics Initiative, a federal interagency program to promote the development of co-robots (http://1.usa.gov/1mk8Sjx).
