Robotics, sensors & 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.
Pushing the envelope and identifying
opportunities where robots can bring value
SRI Robotics solutions have enabled first-of-a-kind innovations in robotics, including Yamaha’s Motobot, minimally invasive telerobotic surgical systems, autonomous fruit harvesting and remotely operated manipulation systems for mining and explosive render-safe.
Today, SRI Robotics is working on innovative solutions to improve the competitiveness of our customers’ robotic products, including artificial muscle actuators, twisted pair transmissions in powered clothing to enhance mobility and aid in the recovery from injury, light and efficient electro-adhesive brakes that enable the next generation of robotic arms and hands, systems to conduct hazardous mining operations or remote repair of satellites in space, lightweight infinity variable transmissions and AI-mediated robotic surgery to provide timely treatment to people injured in remote locations.
