Automatic Feeding Robot

Automatic Feeding Robot

An NSF-funded project to help mitigate the problems of people with decreased mobility, especially with eating, is being conducted under the supervision of Tapomayukh Bhattacharjee at Cornell University. Image credit: Cornell University As a result of human-in-the-loop manipulation, the robot's control algorithms learn from human feedback in order to perform complex tasks related to eating.
