The Multimodal Collaborative Robot System (MCROS) is supported by NSF MRI Program under Grant CNS-2117308. MCROS will provide a state-of-the-art robot platform to advance a wide range of ongoing research projects sponsored by various agencies/organizations and foster multiple potential funding opportunities distributed across four colleges and 12 academic units (departments/institutes/centers) at Montclair State University (MSU). This project is led by MSU CRoSS Lab. The research activities that will be enabled or expanded based on the MCROS mainly cover five focused areas: (1) intelligent systems and advanced computing, (2) ecology and chemistry sciences, (3) smart urban agriculture and food science, (4) human-factors engineering and social science, and (5) interactive learning.
