Welcome to the Waterloo RoboHub

This state-of-the-art robotics research, testing, and training facility enables innovative research on multi-robot and human-robot teams with its unique fleet of fixed-base, wheeled, humanoid, aerial, and magnetically-levitated (maglev) robots. Augmenting this fleet are the RoboHub's high precision indoor positioning system and fully equipped control and command centre.

Each type of robotic platform available in the RoboHub brings its own strengths to the fleet, well established through experiment and deployment of the individual systems. The potential to combine fixed-base, wheeled, humanoid, aerial and maglev robots into effective and efficient autonomous teams stands to revolutionize industry along with producing far-reaching societal benefits.

These technologies and the researchers who use them are the reason the RoboHub is where the future of robotics will be developed.
