Welcome to the ASB Lab

Welcome to the Autonomous Systems and Biomechatronics Laboratory. We are part of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department of the University of Toronto. The lab is directed by Professor Goldie Nejat, who is also the director of the Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics at the University of Toronto.

Our research focuses on developing intelligent mechatronics and robotic systems to assist humans in dangerous and stressful tasks and/or when a shortage of qualified personnel exists. In particular, our research is dedicated to the development of intelligent mechatronics systems with a primary focus on the design of robots and devices. Examples include the design of intelligent robotic systems, sensor agents and devices for search and rescue, exploration, surveillance, human-robot interaction, medical and health care applications.

Our research team is highly interdisciplinary consisting of researchers from both the applied and health sciences.
