Cecelia Jankowski, Managing Director of IEEE’s Member and Geographic Activities, has announced that the IEEE Worcester County Section Robotics & Automation Society Chapter has met the requirements of the IEEE MGA Board Operations Manual and formed a chapter at WPI. Dr. Taskin Padir, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at WPI, has been named Chapter Chair.

The IEEE, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Robotics and Automation Society strives to advance innovation, education, and fundamental and applied research in Robotics and Automation. Robotics focuses on systems incorporating sensors and actuators that operate autonomously or semi-autonomously in cooperation with humans.  Robotics research emphasizes intelligence and adaptability to cope with unstructured environments.  Automation research emphasizes efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability, focusing on systems that operate autonomously, often in structured environments over extended periods, and on the explicit structuring of such environments.

Officer elections and organizational meetings are scheduled for the near future. For more information, please contact Professor Taskin Padir.
