Robotics // Computer Science & Engineering

Robotics researchers at the University of Washington, Computer Science & Engineering department are engaged in ground-breaking work in mechanism design, sensors, computer vision, robot learning, Bayesian state estimation, control theory, numerical optimization, biomechanics, neural control of movement, computational neuroscience, brain-machine interfaces, natural language instruction, physics-based animation, mobile manipulation, and human-robot interaction. We are currently working to define large-scale joint initiatives that will enable us to leverage our multi-disciplinary expertise to attack the most challenging problems in field.

Our group has close interactions with:



Robotics faculty and collaborators in related areas and other departments.


Robotics laboratories focusing on different research topics.


Our weekly Robotics Colloquium features diverse speakers from around the world.
