NASA selected research proposals that seek to address human-robot interaction for use in space exploration, verification of autonomous space systems, as well as development of cryogenic actuators.

Grant recipients include:

  • Daniel Szafir from University of Colorado in Boulder
  • Dimitra Panagou from University of Michigan
  • Kristin Rozier from Iowa State University
  • Necmiye Ozay from University of Michigan
