U of T Robotics News
The new University of Toronto Robotics Institute establishes a central headquarters for world-leading robotics research across U of T and beyond.
UofT researchers presented 25 papers at ICRA this year, covering everything from micro-manipulators to autonomous vehicles and drone swarms, to robot assistants.
Coming this July, the Robotics Institute will evolve into the official central headquarters for robotics at UofT.
Researchers in Prof. Eric Diller’s lab create magnetized microrobots — the size of the head of a pin — that can travel through fluid-filled vessels and organs within the human body.
Professor Jonathan Kelly (UTIAS) recently returned from a week in Yangon, Myanmar, where he partnered with a startup accelerator to teach robotics to 25 local university students.
Researcher’s in Prof. Yu Sun’s lab have built a set of magnetic ‘tweezers’ that can position a nano-scale bead inside a human cell in three dimensions with unprecedented precision.
Together with our industrial partners and collaborators, we are designing a future where robots will extend human capabilities and improve lives at home, as well as around the world.
Students Kaicheng Zhang and Farzad Niroui from Goldie Nejat’s lab win Best Student Paper Award at the 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics (IEEE SSRR).
Prof. Eric Diller’s Microrobotics Lab wins second place in the “Autonomous Manipulation and Accuracy Challenge” event at the 2018 Mobile Microrobotics Challenge.
Researchers at the University of Toronto’s department of computer science and Uber’s Advanced Technologies Group (ATG) in Toronto have developed an algorithm that jointly reasons about multiple self-driving tasks in as little as 30 milliseconds per frame.
Congratulations to Prof. Yu Sun, who has been awarded a chair advancement to Tier 1 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Micro and Nano Engineering Systems.
