UA researchers work on robots to be used for police

By Associated Engineering Press

Researchers at The University of Alabama are working on affordable robots that police could use to communicate with each other, or even with suspects. The National Science Foundation grant is funding the work to build robots with audio and video equipment. The robots could go into places where it may be too dangerous for police.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
