We develop algorithmic foundations
for future generations of intelligent robots.

The Computational Robotics Lab (CRL) is a research group within the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. Led by Prof. Dr. Stelian Coros, our research bridges the fields of Computer Graphics, Robotics and Computational Fabrication.

We draw insights from computer science, applied mathematics and control theory to establish the computational foundations that will accelerate the future of robotics. Applications of our work range from studying the principles of dexterous manipulation and legged locomotion to computation-driven design for new breeds of bioinspired robots. To learn more about our work, please take a look at our publications. We are grateful for past and present sponsorship from Intel, Microsoft, Swiss Post, Hilti, Disney Research, the SNF and the European Research Council.
