The annual Cornell Cup USA competition is a general engineering contest sponsored by Intel. But, while it's not a robot competition, many of the entries are robots, such as the University of Pennsylvania HAWK (Helicopter Aircraft Wielding Kinect) UAV, pictured above, one of the 2012 winners. This year is no exception. Cornell announced the 30 teams who will participate in the 2013 event. Among this year's entries are speech recognition systems, STEM robots, a wheelchair mounted robot arm, several elder-care robots, an autonomous ocean search robot, a smart-home project, a brain-interfaced wheelchair, AUVs, UAVs, a robot shopping cart, a robot for firefighters, a black box for humans, a leaf collection robot, an upper-body exoskeleton, and a swarm of robot that will sanitize hospitals with UV light. Cornell is in the process of creating blogs for each of the teams to post status updates. You can find the team descriptions and blog links in the news release.
