Areas of Research

INTERACTION : Environments : Multi-Robots : People : Self : Enablers 

Research in the Centre's five themes is underpinned by established bodies of theoretical work.

We aim to apply fundamental theoretical methods to real-world problems on real robots to solve pressing commercial and societal needs.
