NASA awarded our team a Valkyrie humanoid robot. We are looking forward to collaborating with NASA, our colleagues at MIT and Space Robotics Challenge competitors to advance the autonomy on Valkyrie. This is an exciting project between Northeastern University professors Taşkın Padır (Electrical and Computer Engineering) and Robert Platt (College of Computer and Information Science), and University of Massachusetts, Lowell professor Holly Yanco (Computer Science).

Robotics and Intelligent Vehicles Research Laboratory
The Robotics and Intelligent Vehicles Research Laboratory (RIVeR Lab) at Northeastern University, originally founded in 2010 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, aims to advance the capabilities of autonomous robots and intelligent vehicles. Research activities focus on design, analysis, implementation and control of intelligent vehicles, mobile robots, walking robots, manipulators and adaptive systems. Aligned with Northeastern University core values of contribution, diversity, engagement, integrity, and opportunity, our projects bring science and technology together with real-world problems.
