In recent years, tremendous advancements in robotics technology have enabled a new generation of applications in fields as diverse as manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, and other commercial and consumer markets segments. The Institute for Robotics & Intelligent Machines leverages the strengths and resources of Georgia Tech by reaching across traditional boundaries to embrace a multidisciplinary approach to solve grand challenges facing society today.

Our faculty members and researchers are engaged in cross-campus partnerships that significantly increase opportunities for the development of practical innovations that will be useful to society. This broad-based commitment to robotics research is evident in the numerous laboratories on campus that perform robotics-related research. The potential applications for robotics are wide ranging; it makes sense that our path to discovering these applications is equally wide, as well as inclusive.
