CMU Personal Robotics Lab

Institute: The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University
Website: http://personalrobotics.ri.cmu.edu/

The Personal Robotics Lab is developing the fundamental building blocks of perception, navigation, manipulation, and interaction that will enable robots to perform useful tasks in environments structured for humans.

The lab was founded by Dr. Siddhartha Srinivasa in 2006 as a collaboration between Intel Labs Pittsburgh and The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.

The main research focus is on manipulation planning, perception for manipulation, and human-robot interaction, in particular on the problem of collaborative manipulation.

The lab does not employ Fawkes as a whole, but rather uses ROS and the port of the Fawkes Lua-based Behavior Engine to this framework.
