Welcome to the Centre for Robotics Research (CoRe).
Please note that an entire overview of CoRe’s publications and grant can be found on the Research Portal PURE.
The Centre for Robotics Research (CoRe) is based on the Strand Campus at King’s College London and is one of six highly esteemed research groups in the Department of Informatics, Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences. The work performed at CoRe achieves significant impact and, therefore, further enhances the reputation of CoRe worldwide ensuring that CoRe maintains its impressive record in winning national and international funding. The Centre is divided into research labs reflecting its varied and multidisciplinary research activities: Computational Neuroscience and Visual Cognition Lab, Control and Automation Lab, Haptics Lab, Morphological Computation Lab, Kinematics and Mechanisms Lab, Machine Learning Lab, Medical Robotics Lab, Medicine Authentication Lab, Robot Environment Interaction Lab, Robotic Rehabilitation Lab, Robotic Sensing Systems Lab, and Soft Robotics Lab. CoRe has 7 academic members of staff, 10 research associates and over 30 PhD students. During the past decade, the research group has published over 150 peer-reviewed journal papers, has been awarded a grant income of over £5m and has graduated over 30 PhD researchers. Currently, CoRe has been given funding of about £3m. Our projects in these areas are funded by the UK Research Councils particularly EPSRC, TSB, the EU and industrial companies.
