CMU’s National Robotics Engineering Center Founded
Carnegie Mellon University forms world renowned National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC). Originally funded with a NASA grant, the NREC was re-oriented in 1996 to advance field robotics for industrial, military, and agricultural field robotics applications. Specializing in autonomous operations and self-driving systems, as well as hardened sensors and the computing systems to support them, CMU’s NREC quickly became the world’s leader in field robotics.
