See Spot walk. See Spot run. Now, students in the Information Technology Program at Mizzou Engineering are seeing how they can make Spot perform more complicated tasks.
Autonomous Systems Will be the Future; IT Professor Making Sure Mizzou Engineers are Ready
Driverless taxis. Delivery drones. Robots that can complete complex tasks. These technologies are emerging quickly, and Dale Musser is determined to make sure Mizzou Engineers are ready.
IT Program Tackles Drone Technologies
hen you want a cloud-computing service at work, you call IT. But who do you contact to integrate a company drone into daily operations? That may not be an everyday problem now, but unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) are quickly becoming a reality for many businesses. And that’s where the Information Technology Program at Mizzou Engineering is stepping up.
