At Northeastern University, researchers are in the process of studying how humans coordinate hand-offs with one another and teaching robots to do the same. There is a great possibility that in the near future, humans and robots will work side-by-side. Thus, the ability to pass tools and objects back and forth becomes vital. Hence, neuroscientists and engineers at Northeastern are working to make sure robots...
