ROBOTS IN THE REAL WORLD
WORKING WITH HUMANS

Our research teams are working to solve today’s pressing challenges in key areas including healthcare and autonomous vehicles.

 

Long term, we aim to develop robots that serve society in real-time, in the real world. These robotic systems will adapt, evolve, and create their own solutions based on the people and situations – the context – they encounter. And they’ll need to be secure.

 

To deliver, we are tackling fundamental research bottlenecks that will open up new capabilities for robots. Autonomous operation in many different environments is just one example.

 

Our plans require new approaches to research. New paradigms. We’ve aligned world-class expertise in hardware, software, cognitive science, design, machine learning, materials, security, and more, to make it happen.

This 'squidbot' jets around and takes pics of coral and fish

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have built a squid-like robot that can swim untethered, propelling itself by generating jets of water. The robot carries its own power source inside its body. It can also carry a sensor, such as a camera, for underwater exploration. Full Story
