The field of robotics has been undergoing a major change from manufacturing applications to entertainment, home, rehabilitation, search and rescue, and service applications. Robotics requires research in many areas that include hybrid systems, embedded systems, sensory fusion, distributed artificial intelligence, computer vision, machine learning, human-machine interaction, localization, planning, navigation, etc. This large field provides ample research problems.

Main activities of the Unit include:

RAS Lab research concentrates on industry and funding organizations funded projects. But, several internally funded projects are also being developed in the laboratory. It provides students and researchers with an opportunity to work on cutting edge robotic technologies and in the development of new robotics applications.

The majority of the work done in the laboratory is on robot and automated systems controllers, control software, perception, sensor fusion, navigation and path planning of autonomous or semi-autonomous systems.

Tools/Laboratories/Equipment available:
- 4 Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs)
- 2 Remotely Operate Vehicles (ROVs)
- Several Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs)
- Electronics, controllers, computers, sensors.
