Robotics

Robotics research in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech takes a wholistic, integrated view in developing intelligent, physically-embodied systems. Our work spans from developing computational approaches to cognitive reasoning and representations to enabling robots to act within our dynamic world. Our research covers the spectrum of robotic intelligence: perception, multi-agent communication (including via natural language), decision-making, learning and evaluation in simulation (and sim2real transfer), task and motion planning, and control. Our faculty also design novel robot hardware and develop new human-robot interaction mechanisms. We contribute to diverse applications (e.g., manipulation, navigation, and locomotion) in a wide range of domains, such as autonomous driving, consumer robotics, manufacturing, and warehouse automation.      

Robotics faculty in the School of Interactive Computing are members of the robust and interdisciplinary center, the Institute for Robotics & Intelligent Machines (IRIM). IRIM leverages the Institute’s strengths and resources by reaching across traditional boundaries to embrace a multidisciplinary approach. The College of Computing, College of Engineering, and the Georgia Tech Research Institute play key, complementary roles through Tech's traditional expertise in interactive and intelligent computing, control, and mechanical engineering. Emphasizing personal and everyday robotics, as well as the future of automation, IRIM faculty help students understand and define the future role of robotics in society.
