|Current Research Centers|
|Center for Integrated Manfacturing Decision Systems (CIMDS)
The Center for Integrated Manufacturing Decision Systems is an eclectic collection of people, projects, and labs involved in research in the fields of manufacturing; visualization and interfaces; intelligent coordination and logistics; intelligent sensors, measurement, and control; and artificial intelligence.
|Center for the Foundations of Robotics (CFR)
The goal of the Center for the Foundations of Robotics (CFR) is to encourage and facilitate fundamental robotics research, both theoretical and experimental. Participants are exploring basic issues in manipulation, mobile robotics, manufacturing, control, motion planning, graphics, and other topics. The CFR provides a venue for fundamental research collaboration through the Foundations Seminar and occasional micro-courses or tutorials.
|Field Robotics Center (FRC)
Field robotics is the use of mobile robots in field environments such as work sites and natural terrain, where the robots must safeguard themselves while performing non-repetitive tasks and objective sensing as well as self-navigation in random or dynamic environments. The Field Robotics Center at Carnegie Mellon University is dedicated to the pursuit of this technology, and to push its limits into the next century, our imaginations, and beyond.
|Magnetic Levitation Haptic Consortium (Maglev)
Low-cost, high-fidelity haptic magnetic levitation haptic interface systems for use by a consortium of haptics researchers in the United States
|Medical Robotics Technology Center (MRTC)
Through innovations in robotics and information technologies for medicine and surgery, we are pursuing perfection in healthcare. We do basic and applied research in computer-assisted surgery, smart medical and diagnostic tools, 2D and 3D medical image analysis and informatics, rehabilitative and prosthetic devices, assisted living and preventive healthcare equipment, and continuous healthcare process improvement. The MRT Center is harnessing and extending robotics and information technologies developed at Carnegie Mellon and elsewhere, and in collaboration with medical centers and biotechnology companies in the Pittsburgh region, quickly getting research results into clinical practice and commercial development.
|National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC)
NREC works closely with government and industry clients to develop and mature robotic technologies from concept to commercialization. A typical NREC project includes a rapid proof-of-concept demonstration followed by an in-depth development and testing phase that produces a robust prototype with intellectual property for licensing and commercialization. Throughout this process, NREC applies best practices for software development, system integration, and field testing.
|Quality of Life Technology Center (QoLT)
QoLT is a unique partnership between Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh that brings together a cross-disciplinary team of technologists, clinicians, industry partners, end users, and other stakeholders to create revolutionary technologies that will improve and sustain the quality of life for all people.
|Vision and Autonomous Systems Center (VASC)
The Vision and Autonomous Systems Center (VASC) is a large research group within The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. VASC personnel consists of over 100 faculty, students, and staff, visitors, working in the areas of computer vision, autonomous navigation, virtual reality, intelligent manipulation, space robotics, and related fields.
|The Robotics Institute is part of the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University.|
