This project introduces the concept of a robotic instructor, allowing participants to feel more comfortable working with and alongside robotics.

Project

The Teach Bot project uses hands-on training to not only train the participant, but also make the participant more comfortable working alongside robotics by using the robot as the instructor. Teach Bot has the ability to work with a wide-range of students, including students with no engineering experience.

Objective

Provide hands-on training to address the workforce shortage for specifically for small and medium sized manufacturers.

Technical Approach

Hands-on training with the robot doubling as an instructor

Participants

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (Principal Investigator), ABB, MassMEP, MassRobotics
