Welcome to Urban Robotics Lab!

We have a great interest in combining Robotics with Civil and Environmental Engineering applications.

Our lab focuses on the development of fusion technologies between IT and civil engineering. The research fields include construction automation, robotics, instrumentation, monitoring, inspection, control, and rehabilitation for civil infrastructure. We also deal with construction informatics supporting sensing, analysis and design activities needed to construct and operate smart and sustainable built environments.
