Victoria is the Vice President
and co-creator of MRISAR, Institute of Science, Art & Robotics, where as a
member of the Research & Development team, she designs and builds science, art
and robotic prototype exhibits for world class science centers, museums,
universities, NASA funded exhibitions and the film and movie industries for
inclusion in media productions. Additionally they design and create low cost
humanitarian & environmental devices, such as Adaptive Technology prototypes for
the disabled. They were the only company in the world to be awarded an entire
chapter regarding their work in the International Federation of Robotics (IFR)
“World Robotics; Service Robotics, 2011”. MRISAR is a for-profit venture that
uses all profits after regular expenses and taxes to fund environmental and
humanitarian based research and development. The founders have won awards and
International accreditation. Their research has been published by Universities &
Scientific Journals and has been featured numerous times in newspaper articles
and television segments.
MRISAR's 4 Member R&D Team
consists of MRISAR's Founders John Siegel & Victoria
Lee Croasdell Siegel and their two youngest daughters Autumn & Aurora Siegel,
(who started helping with R & D when they were preschoolers). They are
each Inventors and Artists. Together they have Designed, Fabricated &
Marketed the Earth’s Largest Selection of "Internationally Renowned &
Awarded" Public Use, World-Class Robotic Exhibits & Devices; and “Hands
On” Innovative, Scientific, Technological & Interactive Art Exhibits. They
have also created STEM Educational Kits & Materials for K thru 12/College
& University level curriculums.
The 1990's circa, original innovative research & development in "Facial Feature Controlled Technology" and "Artificial Sense of Touch Technology", (Adaptive Technology prototypes for the disabled), of Victoria and her partner John, has helped pioneer those fields!
MRISAR was the only company in the world to be awarded an entire chapter regarding their robotics work in the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) “World Robotics; Service Robotics, 2011”.
Here are a few more examples of who has acknowledged their research and development:
An Awarded Winner; in the 2004 NASA - Emhart Technologies, "Create the Future" contest. NASA Tech Briefs magazine and Emhart Technologies, a global leader in the design and creation of assembly technologies, sponsored the event. The submission; an Advanced Bandage that, (1) serves as a substitute for stitches, (2) eliminates skin damage from I.V. adhesive and regular bandages, and (3) provides emergency closure of wounds, was in the area of medical products. It was judged by a panel of the world’s finest engineers and industrialists for scientific functionality, product necessity and practical marketability.

With Additional Support from Faculty and Staff of: Stanford University, VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Immersion Corporation, Intuitive Surgical Inc.
Cybernetics and Robotics; published by and demonstrated before Cambridge University's international conference on adaptive technologies, "CWUAAT", (Cambridge Workshop on Universal Access and Assistive Technology) in March of 2002;
ICORR 99; International Conference On Rehabilitation Robotics: their project was 1 of the 5 Rehabilitation Robotic Prototypes to be chosen World Wide to be demonstrated before "(ICORR)" at Stanford University, California. Their work was published by Stanford University, as part of the proceedings. Their 1990's circa, original innovative research & development in "Facial Feature Controlled Technology" and "Artificial Sense of Touch Technology", (Adaptive Technology prototypes for the disabled), has helped pioneer those fields!
Cybernetics and Robotics; chosen in 2000 by the International "Discover Awards For Innovation" to receive an Award for ranking in the top ten of their category. This also earned them an invitation to demonstrate their prototype at the "Technology Exp 2000" at EPCOT Center, in Disney World.
Cybernetics and Robotics; A Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation Semi-Finalist: their research & development project "Feature Controlled All Terrain Robotic Wheelchair" was ranked as a semi-finalist for this award in April of 1999.
Cybernetics and Robotics; featured in the "Who's Who in Science and Engineering; 8th Edition - 2005 - 2006", publication, by Marquis, LLC.
Cybernetics and Robotics; recognized by the UN as a substantial contributor in the area of robotics and featured in the United Nations "World Robotics 2004" publication, by the Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the IFR; International Federation of Robotics.
Cybernetics and Robotics; Their work has been published by Universities and Scientific Journals. It has been acknowledged in numerous newspapers and television segments. Their most resent project in Rehabilitation Robotics was hailed as "a medical miracle in the making", by NBC Television.
Victoria, the oldest of 10 siblings, was raised in
poverty, in isolated and rural locations. Unable to afford college or health
insurance she became a self taught artist, poet, writer, engineer, mechanic,
photographer and studied Integrated Health Care Systems.
