The Brown University Robotics Group strives to realize robots and autonomous systems that are effective collaborators for humans. Towards this end, we explore problems in human-robot interaction, robot learning, robot perception, autonomous control, dexterous manipulation, and game development. Our approach to these problems often uses techniques from machine learning. Brown Robotics aims to enable reproducibility and interoperability of our research and development work within robotics and across society. Brown Robotics is an active contributor to the ROS effort through our brown-ros-pkg repository.
The PR2 Remote Lab is a web-centered remote robot laboratory comprising a PR2 and the hardware/software infrastructure necessary for making it available for public Internet use. This remote laboratory is designed to allow a wide group of researchers to conduct experiments on a PR2 robot. The infrastructure used to create this lab is open source and can be used to interact with any PR2 robot, and any robot running ROS. This site provides documentation to allow users to begin to interact with the robot in the remote lab as well as to use this documentation with any PR2 robot.
Much of the software we develop is available through the Brown Ros Package collection, which features:
