Welcome to Maryland Robotics Day!
This free event is designed to acquaint you with the University of Maryland's many robotics research projects, faculty, students and facilities. We will introduce you to the Maryland Robotics Center and give you the opportunity to tour our labs, visit with faculty and students, and see our research in action.
Separate tracks for
There is a morning track for student guests and an afternoon track for industry and government professionals. Each track has activities appropriate to its specific audience.
Check out Maryland Robotics Center robots in action on our YouTube channel.

You'll see research in:
Collaborative, Cooperative, Networked Robotics: bio-inspired robotics concepts, time-delayed robotics, robotic swarms, robotic cooperation under limited communication, and distributed robotics.
Medical Robotics: MRI-compatible surgical robotics, haptics-enabled AFM, exoskeletons for rehabilitation, and magnetic micromanipulation for drug delivery.
Miniature Robotics: mesoscale robots; bio-inspired sensing, actuation, and locomotion; cell manipulation (optical, AFM based, and micro fluidics); and micro and nano manipulation (optical and magnetic).
Robotics for Extreme Environments: space robotics and autonomous deep-submergence sampling systems.
Unmanned Vehicles: micro air vehicles, unmanned sea surface vehicles, unmanned underwater vehicles, and planetary surface rovers.
|Maryland Robotics Day is just one of the events in the A. James Clark School of Engineering's
Mpact Week showcase of research and innovation.
