Labs and Groups
Much of our research is multi-disciplinary. Our faculty and students partner with colleagues in other departments in the School of Engineering, as well as other NYU Schools.
Agile Robotics and Perception Lab
ARPL performs fundamental and applied research in robot autonomy. The lab develops agile autonomous drones that can navigate on their own using only onboard sensors without relying on maps, GPS or motion capture systems.
Applied Dynamics and Optimization Laboratory
The ADO Lab studies the modeling, design, and control of engineered and biological systems. The Lab considers systems comprising both robotic and biomechanical components, such as wearable robots.
Applied Micro-Bioengineering Laboratory
Taking advantage of state-of-art nanotechnologies and fabricating fascinating functional biomaterials and integrated biosystems, we can address numerous important problems in fundamental biology as well as clinical applications in disease diagnosis and treatment.
Automation and Intelligence for Civil Engineering
The AI4CE Lab works to advance fundamental automation and intelligence technologies, to enable their use in civil and mechanical engineering applications.
Dynamical Systems Laboratory
The Dynamical Systems Laboratory conducts fundamental research in the broad field of modeling and control of complex systems with specialized expertise in multiphysics modeling and marine applications of advanced/multifunctional materials. Activities span applied mathematics, design and fabrication of novel hardware, and advanced computation and experimentation.
Fire Research Group
Researchers at the Fire Research Group work on an online, scenario-based simulation training program for firefighters. ALIVE (Advanced Learning through Integrated Visual Environments) is a decades-long effort to bridge the information gap between research and real-life firefighting.
Machines in Motion
We try to understand the fundamental principles for robot locomotion and manipulation that will endow robots with the robustness and adaptability necessary to efficiently and autonomously act in an unknown and changing environment.
The Mechatronics Lab is a synergistic integration of mechanical engineering, control theory, computer science, and electronics to manage complexity, uncertainty, and communication in engineered systems.
Medical Robotics and Interactive Intelligent Technologies (MERIIT)
Led by S. Farokh Atashzar, the MERIIT Lab develops and implements artificial intelligence algorithms, smart wearable hardware, advanced control systems, and signal processing modules systems to augment human capabilities using multimodal robotic technologies. A particular focus of the lab is on interactive Neuro-Rehabilitation Robotic and Surgical Robotic systems. Activities range from smart hardware modules to intelligent software systems.
