BGU researchers are developing innovative robots designed to handle jobs too dangerous, dirty or dull for people to do.
BGU is leading the robotics field through basic and applied research on various aspects of robotics technology, such as perception, artificial intelligence, motor control, and mechanical design. Robots developed at BGU are being used in surgery, in search and rescue, and in agriculture. They are spraying and picking crops, climbing walls and crawling through rubble. Wearable robots are harvesting energy from human movement. The University’s Agricultural, Biological and Cognitive (ABC) Robotics Initiative is advancing multidisciplinary robotics research.
