Teaching Spot new tricks
Students in the Autonomous Systems Lab at Mizzou Engineering are teaching Spot the robot some new tricks.
Leader of the pack
Mizzou is one of the only universities in the country to make Spot robots available even to undergraduates. Trevontae' Haughton is part of a team of students and faculty who are finding innovative ways to use Spot for everything from safely monitoring powerplants to performing in Marching Mizzou halftime shows.
Directors appointed to lead new IT program labs
Mizzou Engineering has created two new labs within the Information Technology Program designed to give students additional hands-on research opportunities.
Spot in the spotlight
Information Technology students spent months programming Spot, an agile robot from Boston Dynamics, to perform alongside Marching Mizzou and the Golden Girls at the Oct. 2, 2021, home game.
Spot, meet President Choi
