Projects

The Robotic Discovery Laboratories is unique in that it brings all of the college’s robotic technologies together under one umbrella instead of under each faculty member’s individual laboratory.  This allows  scientists to discuss addressing problems with a variety of technologies and look for ways to integrate data across platforms. Below are some of our featured projects.
