Cloud robotics, deep learning, human-centric automation and bio-inspired robotics are primary research themes of CITRIS People and Robots (CPAR).
Robotics and automation are advancing rapidly due to innovations in sensors, devices, UAVs, networks, optimization and machine learning, accelerated by corporate and private investment. These systems have enormous potential to improve the human experience in health care, manufacturing, transportation, safety and a broad range of other applications in the interests of society. Achieving this will require sensitivity to human issues, rigorous theory evaluated on standard benchmarks and modular systems built on shared software toolkits.
CITRIS People and Robots addresses many of these challenges. CPAR catalyzes research by faculty and students from the four CITRIS and the Banatao Institute campuses, building on 40 years of research that has produced significant results, a network of alumni, and many active labs and projects. CPAR also catalyzes new research with software, datasets, seminars and collaborations with industry, labs and public outreach.
