Agile Robotics and Perception Lab
The Agile Robotics and Perception Lab performs fundamental and applied research in the area of robotics autonomy. The main mission of the lab is to create agile autonomous machines that can navigate all by themselves using only onboard sensors such as in unstructured, and dynamically changing environments and without relying on external infrastructure, such as GPS or motion capture systems. The machines need to be active, they should collaborate with humans and between each other and they need to navigate in the unknown environment extracting the best knowledge from it.
Applied Dynamics and Optimization Lab
Our lab’s fundamental disciplinary areas include multibody system dynamics, optimization theory and algorithms, and design and control of mechanical systems. Main domains for implementations and applications include robotic and biomechanical systems and their intersections such as lower-body wearable robots.
Computational Intelligence, Learning, Vision, and Robotics (CILVR)
The CILVR Lab (Computational Intelligence, Learning, Vision, and Robotics) regroups faculty members, research scientists, postdocs, and students working on AI, machine learning, and a wide variety of applications, notably computer perception, natural language understanding, robotics, and healthcare.
Control/Robotics Research Laboratory
The Control/Robotics Research Laboratory is located at NYU Tandon School of Engineering (Polytechnic Institute), NYU, Brooklyn, New York. The laboratory was set up in 1989 by Prof. Farshad Khorrami. The CRRL has been supported by the University and through grants and equipment donation from NSF, ARO, IBM, AT&T Foundation, and many other industrial organizations.
Machines in Motion Lab
The laboratory aims to understand the fundamental principles of robotic movements and to develop general algorithms that allow robots to autonomously act in unknown environments in a robust, safe and adaptable manner. The lab is specially interested in robots that can walk, climb and manipulate objects. It conducts research at the intersection of automatic control, machine learning, optimization and their application to physical systems.
Medical Robotics and Interactive Intelligent Technologies Laboratory
The mission of the MERIIT Lab is to develop and implement Intelligent Robotic Systems, Advanced Control Modules, Bio-Signal Processing Algorithms, and Smart Wearables to augment human capabilities beyond natural competence. A particular focus of the lab is on interactive Neuro-Rehabilitation Robotic and Surgical Robotic systems. The lab hosts state-of-the-art human-machine interface technologies to exploit bidirectional interactions that allow humans to overcome natural, physiological, and pathological barriers.
Robotics at Tandon
Robotics research and education at NYU focuses on developing and teaching the fundamental principles, theories, and algorithms for autonomous intelligent machines. Through our research and education, we aim to enhance mobility, service, infrastructure, and healthcare. Our mission is to carry out fundamental and multidisciplinary research to advance the science of robotics, to educate and mentor students in the theory and practice of robotics, and to make a positive impact on society.
