The Duke Robotics group was established in 2014 to encompass the significant and growing robotics community at Duke. It is a cross-disciplinary association of research labs and teaching faculty spanning three departments (CS, ECE, and MEMS) and two schools (Pratt and Trinity) on Duke University campus. Its founding was due to an effort led by the Pratt School of Engineering and Department of Computer Science to grow Duke's offerings in robotics research and education.
Our mission is to conduct world-class research and teaching to train future generations of thinkers and creators in robotics. We do so by drawing from our breadth of expertise, which ranges from mechanical design, to artificial intelligence and algorithms, to the social implications of robotics.
