Robotics at Princeton


Robotics at Princeton consists of faculties and research groups working on robotics from various departments at Princeton University. We work on a wide variety of research areas in robotics including perception, control, learning, and planning. Our applications span manipulation, locomotion, drones, autonomous vehicles, construction, architecture, and soft robots. We are constantly expanding, and we welcome new faculties and students to join our collaborative effort.
