The Creative Robotics Lab has 3 leading research focuses:

Founded in 2011 by Professor Mari Velonaki, the lab provides a structured environment that facilitates the creation of experimental interfaces that promote interactivity in physical spaces.

Its' sister facility, the National Facility for HRI Research, is a space to apply and learn from these experiments. This space is facilitated by Senior Research Officer Andrew Haigh.

The inhomogeneous nature of interdisciplinary research demands dedicated spaces that provide appropriate technological infrastructure and a nurturing intellectual environment that encourages experimentation and appreciates the value of unpredictable outcomes. CRL’s close partnerships with the below collaborators to bring diverse expertise in sensing, perception, artificial intelligence and real-time systems, together with a long track record of fully engaged collaboration between media arts and robotics.
