Welcome to the Collaborative Robotics Lab at Virginia Tech! We create learning and control algorithms for robots that collaborate with people. Our goal is to develop intelligent robots that understand — and are understood by — their human partners. These robots personalize their behavior: continually adapting to what the human wants and proactively helping them to achieve their goals. Overall, our research explores the intersection of human-robot interaction, machine learning, control theory, and cognitive science, with applications in personal, interactive, and assistive robots.
Prospective StudentsThank you for your interest! You can find more information here.
- Collab starts at Virginia Tech! You can find us (and our new robots) on the second floor of Goodwin Hall.
- Our work Shared autonomy with learned latent actions was a Best Student Paper finalist at RSS 2020!
- We helped organize a workshop on Emergent Behaviors in Human-Robot Systems at RSS 2020. You can watch the panel discussion here.
