Centre for Automation and Robotics Research
The Centre for Automation and Robotics Research (CARR) brings together robotics-related research, teaching and consultancy. Our mission is to be a focal point where diverse robotics and automation projects are developed alongside each other.
We create a repository of practical solutions and knowledge, and at the same time we can provide a source of inspiration for future developments. We welcome and support any robotics application, be it in art, health and wellbeing, or industrial automation.
We can carry out proof of concept experiments in our lab using our variety of robot arms and mobile robots.
Together with the Art and Design Research Centre (ADRC), we are members of Sheffield Robotics, whose aim is to make Sheffield the leading global centre of research into robotics.
As Sheffield Robotics we can offer a large space for testing mobile robot systems, the space is equipped with different types of cameras and sensors for data recording. Staff are available to help set up experiments.
