Robotics Labs at Rutgers Move to New Downtown New Brunswick Location

Robotics Labs at Rutgers Move to New Downtown New Brunswick Location:

The PRACSYS lab of Dr. Kostas Bekris as well as the research labs of Dr. Abdeslam Boularias and Dr. Jingjin Yu have moved to a new location of the School of Arts and Science (SAS) in downtown New Brunswick. The new address of the robotics lab, 1 Spring Street, is right next to the New Brunswick train station and provides opportunities for additional collaboration with corporate partners and incubation of start-ups. The space provides access to a new, larger robotics lab, which hosts the robotic equipment of the three research groups, including a RoboMantis humanoid robot, a dual-arm Yaskawa Motoman robot, a lightweight Kuka arm on a mobile base, a Baxter robot on a mobile base and small Kuka mobile manipulators, beyond many alternatives for sensing and end-effectors.
