This is the homepage for the Healthcare Robotics Lab at Georgia Tech, which is an interdisciplinary lab that has had members from Biomedical Engineering, Interactive Computing, Electrical and Computer EngineeringMechanical Engineering, and Applied Physiology.

Our research seeks to advance the capabilities of real robots so that they can provide valued assistance to people in unstructured environments. We work with semi-autonomous mobile robots that physically manipulate the world (mobile manipulators). Healthcare serves as an important motivating application area for most of our research. Our projects involve research into human-robot interaction, autonomous mobile manipulation, machine perception, machine learning, and haptics.

Our lab is part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University. Charles C. Kemp (Charlie Kemp) directs the lab, which he founded in September of 2007. The Healthcare Robotics Lab is affiliated with the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines.

We are also very involved with the Robotics Ph.D. program at Georgia Tech. Most of the Ph.D. students who have been members of the lab have pursued a Robotics Ph.D. However, the students have come from many different home schools.
