Henrik Christensen received the Engelberger Award in 2011 for his role in robotics education. As a professor at Georgia Tech, he carries out various research projects with an eye always toward “real problems with real solutions.” He’s published some 300 papers in the field dealing with big-picture topics from robot vision to artificial intelligence.

He recently made the startling prediction that robotics is advancing sufficiently such that children born today will never actually drive a car.
