ROBOTS IN THE REAL WORLD
WORKING WITH HUMANS

Our research teams solve pressing robotics challenges in three overarching areas:
autonomous systems, cyber-physical technologies, and medical robotics.

Many of  the robotics systems we develop are able to adapt and evolve based
on the people and situation - the context - they encounter.

Faculty, students, and professional research staff in each of the
Contextual Robotics Institute's three core research areas will be housed in
collaborative research laboratories - collaborations - in Franklin Antonio Hall,
the newest engineering building at UC San Diego.
