Robotics at Cornell spans various subareas, including perception, control, learning, planning, and human-robot interaction. Students and faculty work with a variety of robots such as aerial robots, home and office assistant robots, autonomous cars, humanoids, evolutionary robots, legged robots, snake robots and more. The pictured lab is the Robotic Personal Assistants Lab run by CS faculty member Ross Knepper. In one corner of the room, you can see a robot with red arms named Yogi. The lab currently has a few projects in the works including one called Solar Airship where they are working to develop an autonomous blimp capable of independent flight for extended periods of time. You can learn more about the work the lab is doing here.
