Robotics @ SRI Play

SRI is delivering the promise of state-of-the-art robotics to government and commercial markets. Our robotics teams invent, apply, and commercialize components, software, and systems that are spearheading the robot revolution. Examples of our innovations include:

Electroadhesive surface-climbing robots
Telerobotic robotic surgical systems
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
Autonomous ground vehicles
Unmanned robotics for the military
Inspection robots for pipelines and port security
Self-organizing, networked robots
Biomimetics and artificial muscle technology
Navigation and mapping software for robotics

SRI researchers have a long, rich tradition of pushing the boundaries of robotics. Our heritage includes the foundational intellectual property (IP) used in Shakey the Robot, Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci surgical system, and the enabling patents for electroactive polymer artificial muscle. Our pioneering developments in robotics have evolved into a solid, comprehensive program that spans multiple disciplines and features expertise in artificial intelligence, algorithm development, sensors research, and product development.

NTER Launch Event - June 21, 2012, Washington, D.C. Play

The National Training and Education Resource (NTER) is a web-based online learning platform for virtual job training, workforce development, and certification. NTER was envisioned by the Department of Energy and developed by SRI. On June 21, 2012, NTER was publicly demonstrated in Washington, D.C.

NTER's interactive 3D and gaming simulations enrich educational content. Its flexible architecture and open-source software enables organizations to easily create, share, and reuse learning materials. NTER's workforce training capabilities have been recognized by government agencies and businesses.
