Biomimetics Millisystem Lab
The goal of the Biomimetics Millisystem Lab is to harness features of animal manipulation, locomotion, sensing, actuation, mechanics, dynamics, and control strategies to radically improve millirobot capabilities.

Berkeley Automation Sciences Lab
UC Berkeley's Automation Sciences Lab, directed by Professor Ken Goldberg of IEOR and EECS, is a center for research in robotics and automation, with current projects in networked telerobotics, computer assisted surgery, automated manufacturing, and new media artforms.

Robot Learning Group
We investigate novel techniques in machine learning, perception and control with applications to autonomous helicopter flight, personal robotics and surgical robotics.


Tele-Immersion @ UC Berkeley
Tele-immersion is aimed to enable users in geographically distributed sites to collaborate in real time in a shared simulated environment as if they were in the same physical room.
