Robotics at the University of New Hampshire
This page gathers together some information about robotics-related
activities at UNH.
Faculty members with active research interests in robotics include:
There are two mailing lists relating to robotics at UNH. Only
subscribers can send to these lists, so there is no spam. The first,
the robotics.seminars list, is for announcements of robotics-related
talks held at UNH. Those outside UNH who are interested in hearing
about talks on campus are encouraged to join this list. To subscribe,
and enter your email address.
The second list, the robotics.list, is for robotics-related news and
gossip among folks in robotics at UNH. If you are a student, faculty,
or staff member at UNH and you are interested in robotics, you should
join the list. To subscribe,

coordinates the UNH Robotics Seminar Series. Feel
free to contact her with suggestions for potential speakers. To hear
about upcoming talks, subscribe to the robotics.seminars list
described above. Did we mention that there's free
pizza at the talks?
Talks are held roughly every other Friday from noon-1pm
in Kingsbury S145 unless
otherwise noted. There's pizza before the talk and
informal socializing afterwards.

UNH often hosts FIRST
high school robotics competitions.
The undergraduates of
Robotics Club often mentor local FIRST robotics teams and are
contemplating participating in a VEX robotics competition.
