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.

The future of healthcare robotics: from home helpers to hospital and surgery assistants

By 2050, the number of people over age 60 will double worldwide. By 2100, it will triple. This population shift will generate dramatically increased demand for caregiving and healthcare services--demand that can’t be met by humans only. In addition, five billion people worldwide lack access to adequate healthcare, especially surgery. These are some of the problems that experts in the field of healthcare robotics from industry and academia came together to tackle during the 2018 Contextual Robotics Institute Forum held Nov. 8 at the University of California San Diego.  Full Story
