Robotics Program

The Melbourne University Robotics Laboratory conducts fundamental research in robotics in biomedical and biomechanics applications.

The laboratory promotes a multi-disciplinary approach to research. Research projects are developed in close collaboration with academics and research staff within the School of Engineering and within the University, such as the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, as well as with colleagues from other universities.


Projects within the Robotics program include:

  • Balanced and Human-like Robotic Bipedal Gait
  • Computational Model of Human Motor Control and Motor Learning
  • Hybrid Cable-driven Robotic Manipulator
  • Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) Vehicle Optimisation
