International Interns Engage in Dynamic Summer Research Program at Princeton

August 9th, 2018

 

In a quiet corner of the Intelligent Robot Motion Lab at Princeton, Sourish Ghosh, a visiting student from the Indian Institute of Technology, is devising an algorithm to power a test-bed robot that is about the size of a dog and has the ability to run and jump.

Ghosh, who is working with Anirudha Majumdar, an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, said the data that eventually will be collected by the robot — which he is fitting with a depth camera and an embedded AI computing device to explore its surroundings — could help guarantee the safety of a variety of autonomous devices. Ghosh said this might include self-driving cars, Mars rovers or even drones that could deliver medical supplies to remote areas of his home country.

This summer, Ghosh is one of 21 participants in the University’s International Student Internship Program (ISIP), which offers promising young scholars the opportunity to conduct research alongside Princeton faculty members. And while the interns learn about the research environment Princeton offers and campus life, they also contribute to the departments that host them.
