An updated version of the sourcebook was published in 1989 edited by J.
In 1983, Hollerbach helped start the International Journal of Robotics Research and the International Symposium of Robotics Research.
In late 1969, the U's computer graphics department was linked into the node at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, California to complete the initial four-node network.
This computer science division at Utah became its own department in 1973.
Efforts in networking and storage at the University of Utah were spurred by Evans' role in establishing a new computer science division in 1965.
Bolstered by a large contract from ARPA, each of the four original nodes interfaced with different computers to explore interoperability issues: a PDP-10 (University of Utah), an SDS Sigma 7 (University of California, Los Angeles), an SDS 940 (Stanford Research Institute) and an IBM 360 (University of California, Santa Barbara).The program aimed to rectify this by accelerating robotics research at MIT over a five year period by supporting writing of a sourcebook on robotic manipulation, starting an annual high-level international academic conference and research journal, outlining an educational program, and building a dexterous and controllable robotic hand.In 1982, Hollerbach co-produced a robot motion sourcebook with J. The book contained sections on dynamics, trajectory planning, compliance and force control, feedback control, and spatial planning; each section had a substantial introduction that served as a tutorial in addition to research papers by 19 top robotics researchers, including Marc Raibert, Robin Popplestone, and Pat Ambler.In 1981 Hollerbach co-founded the Year of the Robot program at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory funded by the System Development Corporation and the Office of Naval Research with the goal of jump-starting serious research in robotics.During the 1970s robotics research was not considered a separate respectable scientific endeavor and was heavily oriented toward industrial robotics with limited vision in potential capabilities.Upon his return to the University of Utah, Evans wanted to cultivate a culture of creativity.He hired faculty with diverse experiences and backgrounds and encouraged interactive use of computing for a variety of creative pursuits.12 copies were made for use in a variety of contexts.At the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Ken Perlin, James Demmel, and Paul K.He received his BS in chemistry in 1968 from the University of Michigan but was interested in the growing computer industry and spent an extra year taking computer science courses to receive an MS in mathematics.Following graduation, he worked at IBM as a chemist but took courses in artificial intelligence and computer science as part of an education program with Syracuse University.
