Robotics researchers at the Department of Computer Science are envisioning interactive robotics systems of the future. We develop cutting-edge robotics methodology and systems with a broad set of ideas in the following areas: mechanical design, continuum & soft robots, computer vision & 3D perception, robot learning, reasoning & planning, optimal control & reinforcement learning, and state estimation. Our research has applications in mobile manipulation, field & service robotics, medical & surgical robotics, legged locomotion, and human-robot interaction.

We are with the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Toronto. We are also affiliated with the Robotics Institute and the Vector Institute.
