Large Grant Awarded to VeHICaL

In a recent article on the website, Berkeley News, the announcement of a $4.6 million grant was discussed. With companies wanting to integrate driver less cars and delivery drones into our society, the need for the safe operation of these machines is paramount. The National Science Foundation has awarded UC Berkeley $4.6 million over five to a group of researchers called VeHICaL, towards researching and improving the human/machine interface. With this grant VeHICaL hopes to find new and improved ways to the manner in which humans and machines interact. How may humans benefit from the interaction with robots? How can drones hurt/help society? How may people be hesitant to adopt this technology?
