The Imperial's Robotic manipulation: Engineering, Design, and Science Laboratory (REDS Lab) conducts research on the analysis, design, control, and implementation of robotic manipulators and hands that can purposefully perform physical changes to the world around us under diversity and uncertainty.

We are devoted to the study and development of future robot technology for manipulation and grasping, and find inspiration in the manipulation problems arising in home and service robotics, healthcare and medical applications, manufacturing, and extreme environments. Our long-term goal is to create robots from scratch that surpass the manipulation capabilities observed in humans and other animals in all conditions. 

A list of our publications can be found here and videos of our latest research here. For more information about the REDS Lab, please contact Dr Nicolas Rojas.
