The mission of the Robotics program is to provide opportunities to develop novel ideas into projects that have the potential to lead to advanced, intelligent robotic systems. The Robotics program supports fundamental research and related education activities in robotics, i.e., machines with sensing, intelligence, and mobility. The emphasis is on systems operating in unstructured environments with a high level of uncertainty; interaction and cooperation of humans and robots; and advanced robotic sensory systems.
