RE2 Receives Funds to Provide Robot & Technical Support for DoD-Funded UCLA Research - top government contractors - best government contracting eventRE2 Robotics has been selected to provide technology and support to aid a University of California – Los Angeles professor’s research on haptics with the award of $1.3 million in funds.

Veronica Santos, the professor who will lead the research, chose the robotics company to provide a Highly Dexterous Manipulation System robot, software support and integration services for her team’s research that aims to develop haptics-enabled robotics systems, RE2 reported Aug. 1.

“The goal of UCLA's research is to develop haptics-enabled capabilities for teleoperated mobile manipulation robots that support human-in-the-loop explosive ordnance disposal missions, whether on the ground or underwater,” said Jorgen Pedersen, CEO and president of RE2.

RE2 will provide the robot and services in support of a Defense Department grant project under the Defense University Research Instrumentation Program.

The project titled, “Field deployable, bimanual mobile manipulator system for research on haptics-enabled dexterous manipulation” led by Santos, who is director of the UCLA Biomechatronics Laboratory, received the DURIP grant from DoD’s Office of Naval Research.
