and those who make it happen


  • Type, Locomotion:

  • EL-E

    Georgia Institute of Technology created the EL-E, an assistive robot that is aimed to help people suffering from certain disabilities and motor impairments.

    The EL-E is designed to pick up objects from the floor, something that may be a bit hard for people who are physically challenged. This assistive robot can grasp an object on different surfaces, and with its laser pointer, it can identify if the object is on an elevated surface. Then it can either raise or lower its arms to get the object.

    With this autonomous mobile robot’s manipulation capabilities, the Healthcare Robotics Lab hopes that this may help improve robotic manipulation and human-robot interaction in the healthcare sector.
