Welcome to the UBC Robotics and Control Laboratory.

The Robotics and Control Laboratory (RCL) carries out research in medical image analysis, image guided diagnosis and interventions, telerobotic and robotic control of mobile machines and manipulators. Applications range from the integration of real-time imaging in image guided therapy, and new concepts for the control of large hydraulic mobile machines such as excavators to small medical telerobotic micromanipulators.

Research projects in the lab are supervised by faculty members in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering and research is done in collaboration with other university departments, government and industrial laboratories. Technologies developed in the lab have been transferred to manufacturers and are incorporated into products sold around the world. An up-to-date list of publications from the Robotics and Control Lab can be found at the lab’s Google Scholar profile.
