About Us

Robotics and Controls group in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at UCONN works on fundamental problems in machine learning and estimation with applications to autonomy and manufacturing. The main focus has been to develop machine learning and estimation tools for nonlinear systems in the research topic areas of machine learning for control/learning from demonstration, human-robot collaboration, and perception. The group philosophy is to integrate research, education and outreach to build a sustainable ecosystem for advancing state-of-the-art.
