The use of robots is moving rapidly beyond controlled environments such as factories to complex environments in the midst of human activity, demanding a nimble cross-disciplinary approach. Research in this area at Princeton includes computer vision, dynamics and control, integrated electronic systems, internet of things, smart cities, and stochastic control. The goal is to advance the productive, safe, and ethical use of robotics by connecting expertise in sensing, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, public policy, and other fields.
