Research Applications

Research robots and devices are mainly designed to collect or analyze data. They may be used to assess the efficiency of robotics software or newly developed appliances.

Research robots are also used in a wide range of studies involving human interaction, movement and locomotion.

Other robots are specifically designed in aiding research in difficult environments such as deep water, extreme cold or outer space.
