RoboTac Lab
AI Robotics & Tactile Intelligence 


At RoboTac, a highly collaborative Research Lab. We seek to understand the underlying principles of active cross-multi-modal interactive perception, learning, and decision-making in intelligent autonomous systems by inspiring humans and biological systems.


Our work is at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics, and Tactile Intelligence applied to problems in Autonomous Robots, Cognitive Vehicles, and Human-Robot/Machine Interaction and collaboration.

One of the major focuses of RoboTac is to enable robotic systems and intelligent vehicles with the sense of touch to understand the physical properties of the environment and to interact with objects and humans intuitively and safely.
