Campbell Institute and Industrial Scientific Honor Innovation in Safety

The Campbell Institute honored the winners of the 2013 Robotics for Life Competition in Pittsburgh on May 6. This year's Robotics for Life Competition, presented by Industrial Scientific, challenged teams of innovative young thinkers and engineers at Carnegie Mellon University to design out hazards in the high-risk occupation of roofing. Teams competed to build a robot capable of shingling a roof, with a goal of laying seven shingles on a simulated angled surface.

The winning team – Carnegie Mellon seniors Kwabena Agyeman, Colllin Buchan, Brian Langone, and Etienne Thalmann – designed and constructed a unique robot that completed the task in just two minutes with very little error.
 
Check out the team's video.
 
Each team member was awarded $1,000. Three other competing teams received cash prizes as well.
 
The Campbell Institute and Industrial Scientific congratulate the winners and all of those who competed in this innovative challenge!
