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 Contextual Robotics Institute 2018 Forum is Thursday, November 8 at UC San Diego. The topic is Healthcare Robotics.
The Forum will explore robotics in healthcare. We will consider both clinical and domestic applications of robotics technology. Topics will include: surgical robotics, physical and sensory augmentation, cognitive support, and industry/government relations.

Robotics researchers at the University of California San Diego have for the first time used a commercial 3D printer to embed complex sensors inside robotic limbs and grippers. But they found that materials commercially available for 3D printing still need to be improved before the robots can be fully functional. Full Story

To get reliable autonomy there have to be layers of robust software built from the ground up. In the underwater domain, this is a difficult feat due to the lack of reliable navigation or communication. The talk will go through the levels of autonomy necessary to build a multivehicle autonomous mission capable of collaboration or swarming.
