Featured was the work of Greg Fischer, associate professor, mechanical engineering, who, with his wife, Laurie Dickstein-Fischer, Ph.D., a professor at Salem State, developed the robotic penguin PABI (Penguin Autism Behavioral Intervention) for autistic children. WBZ visited a local classroom to see children interact with the penguin. “This design is close to the point where it could be commercialized,” Fischer said.  “I would think within a couple of years we could get something like this deployed.”
