The YRL was established in 2012 as a joint venture between the Departments of Computer Science and Department of Electronic Engineering and is located on the Heslington East campus at York.
The Lab provides state of the art facilities for robotics design, research and teaching and brings together expertise from a wide range of science and engineering areas, including computer science, electronics, biology, environment and mathematics.

A paper based on research conducted at YRL has today been published in Frontiers in Robotics and AI. The paper, which discusses the ARDebug software for augmented reality assisted debugging and tracking of robotic swarms, builds on work carried out by Alistair Jewers, an undergraduate student who graduated last year, as his final year research project, and also Charlotte Arndt, a current MSc Intelligent Robotics student.

The Department of Electronics is launching a new taught MSc Course in Intelligent Robotics, starting October 2016.
Whenever possible we welcome visitors, and are keen to undertake outreach to schools in the area, please read our outreach pages for more information.
We are keen to work with a wide variety of sectors from industry and business, to find out more about what we can offer you please contact us.
Research at YRL is addressing both fundamental and practical robotics research. We work in areas ranging from the control and adaptation of robotic systems, assuring safety in autononomous systems, to the deployment of individual and swarm robotic systems for environmental monitoring.
