Robotics, sensors, and devices
From robotic surgery to robots in space, SRI drives state-of-the-art robotics to create smart systems that can sense, think and act.
Our R&D teams accelerate the time to creating new autonomous capabilities, innovative components and first-of-their-kind prototypes.
SRI researchers discover innovative paradigms to invent and develop high-performance solutions. Our teams work together across disciplines to break new ground and solve ambitious challenges.
Rapid machine-learning paradigms, high-efficiency mechanical design, adaptive controls and algorithm development
Coordination of sensing, planning and control and high-performance actuators; haptic feedback and handling kinematic and dynamic constraints in real-time
Advanced technology and systems including incoherent scatter radar, space- and ground-based sensors, and Lidar, imaging, and spectroscopy
Remote sensing systems including biological sensor development, microfluidic devices, optical remote sensing, trace gas sensing and sensor modeling and phenomenology
Pushing the envelope and identifying
opportunities where robots can bring value
