Team Northeastern

Team Northeastern was one of thirty-eight teams from sixteen countries to be selected by the Avatar XPRIZE Judging Panel to advance to the Semifinals of the ANA Avatar XPRIZE competition. The team has built a mobile robot using a combination of originally designed hardware and re-engineered off the shelf robotic systems. The full system consists of a Husky UGV, Universal Robots UR5e, and an in-house designed/assembled hydraulic gripper and ultralight haptic glove.
