Welcome to the Waterloo RoboHub

This state-of-the-art robotics research and test facility enables innovative research on multi-robot teams with its unique fleet of humanoid, aerial, ground, and magnetically-levitated (maglev) robots. This is essential for a thorough investigation of the opportunities that will come from studying multi-robot coordination.

Each type of robotic platform included in the RoboHub brings its own strengths and limitations, well established through experiment and deployment of the individual systems. The potential to combine ground, humanoid, aerial and maglev robots into highly efficient autonomous teams stands to revolutionize a wide range of industries and have far reaching societal benefits.

    The Globe and Mail published an article on the RoboHub along with the other facilities in the new E7 building. Visit their website for the original article.

    If robotics development is anything like driving a car, the University of Waterloo is about to upgrade to a brand-new Ferrari from an old jalopy.

    This fall, students and faculty will be able to access the RoboHub – a purpose-built test facility for a variety of robots, from humanoids and wheeled vehicles to flying drones.
