Launched on November 4, 2013, the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) evolved into Georgia Tech’s newest Interdisciplinary Research Institute (IRI), built upon the foundational work developed in the former Robotics & Intelligent Machines Center (RIM@Georgia Tech). IRIM brings together robotics researchers from across campus—spanning colleges, departments and individual labs—to create new collaborative opportunities for faculty, strengthen partnerships with industry and government and maximize the societal impact of the transformative robotics research conducted at Georgia Tech.

  • Composable Optimization for Robotic Motion Planning and Control 

    Manchester, Zachary (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-11-02)
    Contact interactions are pervasive in key real-world robotic tasks like manipulation and walking. However, the non-smooth dynamics associated with impacts and friction remain challenging to model, and motion planning and ...
  • Ballbots 

    Hollis, Ralph L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-10-19)
    Who would want to make a mobile robot that has only a single spherical wheel? Well, I did! My talk will trace the development of the first successful “ballbot,” beginning in 2004. Now, many ballbots have been built or ...
