- Innovation and Industry
For RIM@GT Tech robotics necessitates multidisciplinary research. Our faculty and staff are engaged in cross-campus partnerships that significantly increase opportunities for the kind of practical innovation that will be useful to society. This broad-based commitment to robotics is evident in more than a dozen laboratories at Georgia Tech performing robotics-related work:
Robotics Laboratories at Georgia Tech
