Octavia Attends Fleet Week


The Office of Naval Research has been funding a project at their Research Lab in Washington D.C. Octavia, named after sci-fi author Butler, made an appearance at last week's Fleet Week in New York City. The autonomous bot was designed to work with humans in a computational cognitive way. She has an expressive face, including moving eyes and head, workable hands and fingers, and gets around on wheels. Her sensor and camera system can react to her environment. Octavia is one of 3 MDS robots, the others being Isaac (Asimov) and Lucas (George.)
