Technical Reports


Robotics is an active research area that includes activites related to learning, sensing, mechanism design and planning. Robotics research at SOCS includes all of these activites, and it is closely related to robotics research in the adjacent Center for Intelligent Machines as well as related enginnering departments.

Robotics research at McGill is an area of exceptional strength, partly due to the close relationship between SOCS faculty and members from other departments.
