Collaborative Robotics Lab

Collaborative robots are robots that work synergistically with humans and with other agents. Example application areas include emergency response robots that extend the search for survivors into dangerous or inaccessible areas; manufacturing robots that provide precision and persistence to dull, dirty, dangerous tasks; and home assistance robots, including Internet-of-Things technologies, that improve user convenience, reduce the burdens of daily living, and enhance quality of life. Primarily a graduate research lab that explores mechanism and sensor design, artificial intelligence, self-adaptive systems, and programming methods, the Collaborative Robotics Lab also provides research experiences for undergraduates and outreach opportunities to STEM-based organizations.
