Robotics and Automation

We invent, apply and commercialize the products that help you harness the visionary promise of robotics.

SRI researchers have a long, rich tradition of pushing the boundaries of robotics and now, automation. Our robotic manipulation and automation technologies allow humans to extend and leverage their capabilities by using robots in dangerous, repetitive or other unusual environments.

Our cross-disciplinary teams create the components, software and systems that are spearheading the robot revolution. SRI’s pioneering developments in robotics have evolved into a comprehensive program that spans multiple disciplines and features expertise in artificial intelligence, algorithm development, sensors research, and product development. Core areas of focus include:

  • Manipulation
  • Mobility
  • Actuators
  • Automation systems
  • Machine learning
  • Perception
  • SLAM
  • Micro-robots
  • Electro-active materials
