This is the homepage for the Healthcare Robotics Lab at Georgia Tech, which is an
interdisciplinary lab with members from
Electrical and Computer Engineering, and
Our research seeks to advance the capabilities of real robots so that they can provide valued assistance to people in unstructured environments. We work with semi-autonomous mobile robots that physically manipulate the world (mobile manipulators). Healthcare serves as an important motivating application area for most of our research. Our projects involve research into human-robot interaction, autonomous mobile manipulation, machine perception, machine learning, and haptics.
Our lab is part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University. Charles C. Kemp (Charlie Kemp) directs the lab, which he founded in September of 2007. The Healthcare Robotics Lab is affiliated with the Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines, the Health Systems Institute, and the Institute for People and Technology.
We're also very involved with the Robotics Ph.D. program at Georgia Tech. Most of the graduate students in the lab are pursuing Ph.D.'s in robotics through the Robotics Ph.D. program. However, the students come from many different home schools, to which they applied and were admitted.
