Vision-Guided Robotics is a major focus of research at the CVIP Lab, which enables robot arms to smartly track dynamic objects moving on random paths, and adjust the grabbing/touching force based on objects size, softness and shape.
Robotics and Automation
The future is here, as engineers have already introduced robots to healthcare, law enforcement, supply chains, etc. Speed School students don’t worry that robots are coming to steal our jobs. They’re too busy devising ways to make our jobs easier, more productive, and more beneficial to society. Robotics can be applied to nearly any discipline within engineering, with solutions emerging in nursing, surgery, manufacturing, distribution, and aeronautics — among many others.

Dr. Dan Popa, Electrical & Computer EngineeringFaculty Story
"What I envision in the next 50 years would be humans and robots in close collaboration, or studying the basis for that science -- and a lot of these discoveries being done here."

Facility Aerial Robotics Lab
In the Aerial Robotics Lab, Speed Students build unmanned drones with complex navigation systems, secure mobile networking, and fault tolerance. Most of this work is completed with off-the-shelf or 3D-printed components.
