The Autonomous Robotics Research Center (ARRC) is leading the advancement of robotics, computer vision, and bio-inspired technologies in the region. Our international team of experts from top-tier academic institutions and research organizations specialize in perception, communication, control and decision making, bio-inspiration, and modular and self-organized autonomous systems. We explore their application across multiple environments: air, land, on-sea and underwater.
ARRC is part of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a global scientific research center attracting the world’s foremost scientists and researchers. TII leads worldwide advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, quantum computing, cryptography and quantum communications, directed energy, secure communication, smart devices, advanced materials, and propulsion and space technologies, and biotechnology fields.
TII belongs to the Abu Dhabi Government’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), which oversees the technology research in the emirate.
We research, develop, and apply novel technologies to innovate robotics solutions that are fully independent of human intervention and human infrastructure, while still being able to interact with humans and other biological systems in the environment.
We create breakthrough solutions in areas such as search and rescue, environmental monitoring, shipwreck recovery, oil-spill recovery, surveillance, mapping of confined or large environments, and reconstruction of damaged ecosystems.
