Video still image of Glenn Nickens, a student at Norfolk State University. When Glenn was an undergraduate at the University of the District of Columbia, he participated in a summer robotics program at Carnegie Mellon University, where he worked with Dr. David Touretzky, co-founder of the ARTSI Alliance, to create this robot using the Tekkotsu robot programming system. The robot can identify and track objects visually and pick them on command.
