Robotics research at the University of Minnesota received a big boost with the completion of a new Robotics Lab in renovated space on first two floors of the Shepherd Labs building. The renovation also provides new space for the Solar Vehicle Project. The renovation was funded primarily by about $11 million private support in addition to about $2 million in state funding for the University's MnDRIVE initiative.
