Welcome to the Robotics Lab
The Robotics Lab at the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences (MACS) focuses on interdisciplinary research applied to the state of the art autonomous intelligent robotics and human-robot interaction. We are part of the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics (ECR).
Our research requires cross-disciplinary investigations in several areas such as biologically inspired algorithms, evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, psychology, machine learning, data mining, computational neuroscience and cognitive science, among others.
We have close ties with the "Intelligent Systems Lab (ISL)", "Interaction Lab (iLab)" within the Computer Science department. We also have links with Dr. Xianwen Kong's robotics group at the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Dr Adam Stokes at University of Edinburgh plus other renowned research groups in UK, Europe and Brazil.
Our Robotics Lab is dedicated both to research and education. As result we are responsible for the academic development of robotics expertise for undergraduates and a number of MSc and PhD students who work closely together with our researchers and academics.
