Robotics researchers at UW CSE are engaged in ground-breaking work in mechanism design, sensors, computer vision, robot learning, Bayesian state estimation, control theory, numerical optimization, biomechanics, neural control of movement, computational neuroscience, brain-machine interfaces, natural language instruction, and physics-based animation. We are currently working to define large-scale joint initiatives that will enable us to leverage our multi-disciplinary expertise to attack the most challenging problems in field.
Our group has close interactions with the larger UW community interested in robotics, the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering, the Center for Game Science, the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences, and the Intel Science and Technology Center for Pervasive Computing.
